Build agreements

nbn undertakes certain types of build activities for retail service providers (RSPs), which are not declared services and are not performed under an access agreement. For information purposes, nbn makes available below the standard agreements that it uses to offer certain build activities to RSPs. nbn may update these standard versions from time to time.

Executable copies of these agreements may be requested through your nbn™ Account Manager.

These agreements and the activities they govern differ from the range of nbn™ products that are declared services under Part XIC of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

nbn™ products are available under the Wholesale Broadband Agreement and other access agreements.
