The Herald reports:
The Commerce Commission has formally recommended that mobile termination rates be regulated to promote better competition in the market and to bring New Zealand in line with international standards.
Joyce is now inviting submissions on the Commerce Commission’s reconsidered final report.
Submissions close at 5pm June 29.
Under the Telecommunications Act, the Minister may accept, reject, or require the Commerce Commission to reconsider the recommendations.
“I will make a decision upon consideration of the report, submissions, and advice from officials. It is my intention to do this in a timely manner,” Joyce said.
I would be incredibly surprised if the recommendations are rejected, considering the Minister asked them to reconsider the earlier split recommendation, and you now have a unanimous recommendation.Tags: mobile termination rates
