Telstraclear Welcomes Decision

July 19, 2002
Telstraclear Welcomes Decision To Determine Pricing Of Wholesale Access

TelstraClear has welcomed the Telecommunications Commissioner’s decision to determine the pricing for the wholesaling of retail services on Telecom’s fixed network.

TelstraClear Chief Executive Rosemary Howard says the company looks forward to the outcome of the Commission’s investigation.

TelstraClear submitted a formal application to the Commissioner on May 16 to set prices and terms of supply for interconnection with Telecom’s network and key regulated wholesale services. Last month the Commissioner agreed to determine interconnect prices and non-price terms between TelstraClear and Telecom.

Mrs Howard said TelstraClear welcomed the decision on wholesale services.

“Until competitively priced wholesale access is possible, industry players remain unable to provide all New Zealanders with innovative new communication solutions,” she says.

“Competitively priced wholesale access is the catalyst for a huge potential of benefits for customers. It will lead to innovative wholesale solutions and choices for New Zealanders and therefore faster uptake of new technologies such as broadband,” she says.

Mrs Howard says TelstraClear respects the Commissioner’s decision not to investigate wholesale pricing of bundles of services at this time. It hopes for speedy resolution of the commercial negotiations it began with Telecom in May over reselling residential services, including bundled residentialservices.
