when the deal was announced, NBNco released a statement to say


NBN Co plans to integrate the TransACT FTTP network with the NBN. 
Residents’ in-premises equipment will be swapped over when a home or 
business owner orders an NBN-enabled service through their preferred 
service provider. TransACT will continue to complete construction of 
pit-and-pipe infrastructure in a number of new estates where developer 
agreements are in place until 2017, and transfer ownership to NBN Co at 
no charge, for the installation of fibre.

//TransACT will also provide technical support to assist the integration 
of their FTTP network with the NBN and work with its customers to 
achieve a smooth transition.


/So, Transact is still deploying pit, pipe and other infrastructure 
through to 2017, and then the transact NTU equipment needs to be 
converted to a NBN NTD, but only when the end-user orders a NBNco 
service. "just" is a very lose term to use for a technically complex 
task that can turn out to be protracted and drawn out for several years.
