AGL supports the CDR regime as an economy wide model that enables consumers to have access to, and control over, data that directly relates to them. While CDR provides immediate benefits to consumers by accessing data in near real time from designated sectors and therefore advice on the best available product or service in the sector, the longer-term benefit of CDR is the ability for service providers to innovate across the various CDR designated sectors and provide consumers with holistic multi-services in a convenient one-stop shop arrangement. As a multi-product retailer, AGL recommends that Treasury ensure the telco sectoral assessment not only focusses on telco related use cases but also considers the multi-service provider use cases and benefits that can flow to consumers from a broader industry designation. We explore this further in our linked response.
