New Facilities Investment Tests

A Network augmentation means an increase in the capability of the covered network to provide covered services, including through the development, construction, acquisition or commissioning of new network services.

The new facilities investment test is applied to determine the extent to which capital expenditure for major augmentations can be recovered through regulated tariffs. The test seeks to ensure that only efficient investment, which benefits all users of the network, is recovered through regulated tariffs.
