Pivit advised the Community Association (CA) in the latter part of 2018 that it had been discussing with LBNCo the potential for that company to replace Pivit as the provider of telecommunications services at Prince Henry at Little Bay.
Services currently provided are:
- Broadband internet
- Fixed line telephones
- Free to air television
- Pay television via Foxtel
The course of action since the CA received that advice follows:
- 29 November 2018 | Informal meeting with Pivit, LBNCo and the CA Executive Committee
- 21 December 2018 | Letter received by the CA from Landcom
- 3 January 2019 | CA response to Landcom
- 29 January 2019 | Formal meeting with Landcom and the CA Executive Committee (lawyers present)
- 20 February 2019 | Formal proposal received from Pivit
- 1 March 2019 | CA letter to Landcom detailing deficiencies in Pivit’s formal proposal
- 1 March 2019 | CA email to Pivit advising that the proposal was unacceptable to the CA, the CA was consulting with Landcom and its legal team, and the CA’s legal team would respond to the proposal in due course.
- 13 March 2019 | Letter from Landcom advising it has no ongoing obligations to Prince Henry in respect of telecommunications services and that its preferred position would be for the CA to enter into an agreement with the new provider.
- 22 March 2019 | EC meeting with Maddocks lawyer Brendan Coady, Sector Leader Technology, to determine a strategy to manage the transition.
- There are two parties involved in the Network Management Services Agreement covering telecommunications services to residents of Prince Henry at Little Bay — Landcom, the Principal, and Pivit, the Operator. The CA is not a party to the agreement.
- Landcom is well aware how critical these services are to each and every Prince Henry resident, and is consulting openly and regularly with the CA on the proposed changes.
- The CA will not make any decisions until proposed changes, be it the operator or the type/level of service, has been cleared by its legal team, and presented to all Prince Henry lot owners at a Special General Meeting.
