接入特許管道的條款與條件

1. 說明

於2009年11月6日修訂的特許合同訂立CTM有義務給予政府和持有牌照以建立和營運電信基礎設施的電信服務經營者(受益實體),透過事先協議,接入和使用特許管道,以安裝、維護和拆除為提供電信和相關服務所需的電信系統。

本附件二列明CTM根據特許合同第十條款的規定關於使用、管理和經營特許管道的條款與條件。

政府有權為特定目的並根據與CTM事先同意的條款與條件接入和使用特許管道。

接入特許管道還包括接入檢修孔和管道室等相關基礎設施,惟該等接入為具體安裝、維護或拆除受益實體的電信系統所不可缺少。

受益實體只有在已經獲得建設本身的電信基礎設施的權利,並且持有澳門特別行政區為此需要而發出的所有正式批准情況下,方可獲得接入和使用特許管道的權利。

2. 接入特許管道

在受益實體提出要求和對適用的條款與條件達成協議後,CTM得給予受益實體接入和使用由CTM負責管理的特許管道,為向公衆提供電信和相關服務的需要而進行安裝、維護和拆除電信系統。

在有理據且為政府所接受的情況下,在上段的規定中可接受的例外如下:

i)物理上和技術上不可行;

ii)危及在基礎設施內工作的人員的健康和安全。

CTM應確保特許管道內既有的設備和硬件的完整和可操作性。作為特許管道的管理人,CTM有權監察和監督在特許管道內進行的所有工程。CTM可拒絕或停止危及特許管道內既有設備和硬件的完整和可操作性的任何工程。

3. 特許管道內的空間

CTM有權在特許管道內為本身的使用而劃分和保留合理的空間,以滿足其現有和預計的所有需求,包括用於維護、修理、運作或替代(後備)的空間。為將來發展而保留的空間應遞交政府批准。

一旦空間被保留,CTM不得在超過其提交給政府的所述保留空間外安裝電纜或設備,除非另行取得政府同意。

除上段所述情況外,CTM不得在特許管道內佔用空間,妨礙受益實體接入基礎設施。

特許管道的接入應僅限於和專門用於舖設受益實體本身的電纜,並符合受益實體用以解釋其接入特許管道申請的相關正式批准。

倘特許合同被終止,CTM有權終止關於接入特許管道的任何合同。

4. 特許管道的資料和保密

CTM應根據有意者的申請,按照將設定的價格向其提供已界定在技術和運作上可行的特許管道接入路徑的資料,而該路徑將作為提供特許管道共用的目的。

CTM和受益實體在關於特許管道的任何協議中所交換的資料應嚴格保密。就特許管道所提供的任何計劃應專門用於編制接入申請,且接入申請中所載的或所提供的資料均不得用於非接入的目的或向第三者披露,除非資料的發出者另行給予明確的書面同意。

5. 特許管道的改建

倘特許管道應進行路線重設或改建,CTM作為特許管道的管理人有義務按照與受益實體之間的特許管道接入合同,規劃和協調重建的過程。

在緊急或不可抗力情況下,CTM可不通知受益實體而對特許管道進行修改、取消或改建特許管道,以保持特許管道的完整性和正常運作。CTM應在有關情況發生後的下一工作日向政府作出報告。

倘政府要求CTM更改或拆除特許管道或電纜,致使CTM無法向受益實體提供合適的管道或足够的管道容量,則CTM無義務為受益實體提供或建造額外的管道容量。CTM將不負擔更改或拆除特許管道或電纜的相關費用。

6. 維護

CTM有義務確保特許管道的完整性和良好的運作狀態。CTM可能暫時中斷或暫停提供對特許管道的接入,以便優先進行為該目的之維護工作。在此情況下,CTM應向受影響的受益實體事先發出通知。

7. 價格

CTM應提供一份涵蓋不同接入和使用特許管道項目的標準價格表。該標準價格表須經政府核准。

價格應確保給予CTM公平的補償、對特許管道作為稀有資源的有效分配、以及將之定在鼓勵對特許管道進行投資的水平。

8. 為獲發牌電信經營者提供的管道接入參考建議

管道接入參考建議(ORAC)是一份文件,訂定了在管道接入合同(CAC)內應遵循的一般原則和條件,該合同為CTM與受益實體在接入和使用特許管道以安裝、維護和拆除電信系統之前所訂立的。

Annex II

Terms and Conditions for the access to the Concession Ducts

1. Introduction

The Concession Agreement as revised on 6th of November 2009, establishes the obligation of CTM to make available to the Government and duly licensed telecommunications operators with the right to build their own facilities (Beneficiary Entities), subject to prior agreement, access and use of the Concession ducts for the installation, maintenance and removal of telecommunications systems necessary to the offer of telecommunications and associated services.

This Annex II sets out the terms and conditions on which CTM uses manages and operates the Concession ducts, in accordance with clause ten of the Concession Agreement.

The Government shall have the right of access and usage of the Concession ducts, for specific purposes and under terms and conditions previously agreed with CTM.

Access to the Concession ducts will also include access to the associated infrastructure of the manholes and duct chambers to the extent that they are indispensable for the specific installation, maintenance or removal of the telecommunications systems of the Beneficiary Entity.

The access and use of the Concession ducts shall only be made available to Beneficiary Entities who have been granted the right to build their own telecommunications infrastructure and hold all the relevant official permissions granted by MSAR.

2. Access to the Concession ducts

CTM shall provide, upon request of the Beneficiary Entities and after agreement is reached on the terms and conditions, access and use of those Concession ducts the management of which falls under CTM’s responsibility, for the installation, maintenance and removal of telecommunication systems necessary to offer telecommunications and associated services to the public.

Acceptable exceptions to the above, provided that they are duly reasoned and accepted by the Government are:

i) Physical and technical unfeasibility;

ii) Threat to the health and safety of the personnel that work in infrastructures.

CTM shall ensure the integrity and operation of the equipment and hardware existing inside the Concession ducts. As the Concession ducts manager, CTM may monitor and supervise all works carried out in the Concession ducts. CTM may refuse or stop any work that endangers the integrity and operation of the equipment and hardware existing inside the concession ducts.

3. Space in the Concession ducts

CTM shall have the right to allocate and reserve for its own use reasonable amount of space in the Concession ducts to meet all of its current and forecasted requirements, including space for maintenance or repair, operation and backup purposes. This forecast allocation shall be submitted to the Government for approval.

Once this space is reserved CTM shall not install cables or equipment that exceeds this said space allocation submitted to the Government, unless otherwise agreed with the Government.

CTM shall not take up space in the Concession ducts, other than the above, that would impede access of infrastructure by Beneficiary Entities.

Access to the Concession ducts shall be used solely and exclusively for the passage of the Beneficiary Entity’s own cables and be in compliance with the respective official permission, which has been used by the Beneficiary Entity to support its access request to the Concession ducts.

CTM has the right to terminate any agreement for space in the concession ducts in case of termination of the Concession Agreement.

4. Information on Concession ducts and confidentiality

CTM shall make available, upon request, to interested parties, at a price to be set, information on the defined technically and operationally feasible Concession ducts access routes that are to be offered as routes for Concession ducts sharing.

The information provided by CTM and Beneficiary Entities in any agreement involving the Concession ducts shall be treated as strictly confidential. Any plans made available concerning the Concession ducts shall be used exclusively for the preparation of access requests and neither the information contained in the access request nor the information provided shall be released to third parties, unless express written consent is otherwise granted by the disclosing party, or used for purposes other than those of access to the Concession ducts.

5. Concession Ducts restructuring

In the event that Concession ducts are to be rerouted or restructured, CTM as the Concession ducts manager is obligated to plan and co-ordinate the restructuring process in line with the Concession ducts access agreements with Beneficiary Entities.

In cases of emergency or force majeure, CTM may amend, terminate or restructure the Concession ducts, without notification to the Beneficiary Entities in order to preserve the integrity and working order of the concession ducts. CTM shall report such cases to the Government on the next working day following the day of the incident.

Should the Government require CTM to divert or remove Concession ducts or cables, and as a result CTM has no suitable duct or enough duct capacity available for the Beneficiary Entity, then CTM shall have no obligation to provide or construct additional duct capacity for the Beneficiary Entity. CTM will not be responsible for the costs associated to the diversion or removal of the Concession ducts or cables.

6. Maintenance

CTM has the obligation to ensure the integrity and good working order of the Concession ducts. CTM may temporarily interrupt or suspend the provision of access to the Concession ducts in order to give priority to maintenance work done in this regard. In such cases CTM shall give prior notice to Beneficiary Entities affected.

7. Prices

CTM is to provide a standard price schedule containing the different items for access and usage of Concession ducts. This standard price schedule is subject to approval by the Government.

The pricing shall ensure a fair compensation to CTM, an efficient allocation of the Concession ducts as a scarce resource, and be set at a level that encourages investment in ducts.

8. Reference Duct Access Offer for Licensed Telecommunications Operators

The Reference Duct Access Offer (RDAO) is a document that sets out the general principles and conditions that shall be met by the Duct Access Agreement (DAA) to be entered into between CTM and the Beneficiary Entities, prior to the provision of access and usage of the Concession ducts for the installation, maintenance and removal of telecommunications systems.
