Fibre optic cable networks to now be registered with CA in new regulations

I agree with you 101 % ICTA is out of line with this, thats not there mandate ,
The data they are looking for is already held by counties and road authority agencies
before way-leave is issued drawings are submitted to both and on that basis , permit is given

kind regards
