Commerce Commission invites submissions on mobile termination access

The Commerce Commission is inviting submissions as it decides if mobile termination access services undertakings should be regulated. Vodafone, Telecom and NZ Communications have sent in undertakings.

Mobile termination access services are the terms and conditions under which mobile phone companies terminate calls and text messages on their networks, enabling users to receive services from different phone networks.

A key condition is the prices charged for the termination of calls. According to the Commission, mobile termination charges are a significant contributor to the retail prices of calls and text messages to phones.

The Commission is investigating whether termination access services should become regulated under the Telecommunications Act. It is making public the undertakings to provide interested parties with an opportunity to comment.

Chair Paula Rebstock says people can make submissions on the undertakings until Thursday 5 February.

“After the receipt of submissions, there will be a reasonable opportunity for parties to amend their undertakings in light of any submissions received.”

The undertakings can be accessed on the Commission’s website.
