Additional suppliers could also be selected over time.

The NT II services are designed and delivered to meet each customer's business requirements, rather than to deploy particular technologies.

While customers purchase most services directly from the suppliers, TMD is responsible for:

  • Contract supervision and monitoring
  • Development of new services
  • Ordering of common services
  • Quality assurance
  • Benchmarking
  • Pricing reviews

The cost of providing these contract management services is recovered by suppliers on TMD's behalf through the collection of a 5% contact management fee.

The common services, ordered by TMD on behalf of customers, are the core network, the internet gateway services, messaging services and the government directory service.  Depending on the customer, costs for these are recovered either:

  • By TMD in proportion to each customer's use of NT II connection services (from any supplier); or
  • Directly by Telstra
