Commission to investigate CallPlus application

Telecommunications Act: Commission to investigate CallPlus application for wholesale determination

The Commerce Commission has decided to investigate the wholesale element of CallPlus Limited's application for an access determination under the Telecommunications Act 2001, so far as it concerns certain retail services supplied separately, but not as parts of bundles.

CallPlus applied to the Commission in December 2002 for a determination relating to interconnection services and wholesale (resale) services from Telecom New Zealand Limited. The Commission announced its decision to investigate interconnection services in March this year.

Those retail services the Commission will investigate are:

* 64 K DDS and 64 K Metropolitan DDS data services;

* monthly business line rental;

* business local call charging;

* ATM Access data services; and

* IPNet (limited to existing Telecom corporate customers).

The Commission proposes to issue a draft Determination and seek submission from interested parties on the matter.

Background

CallPlus provides telecommunications services to predominantly residential customers and small and medium enterprises in New Zealand.

Section 25 of the Telecommunications Act 2001 states:

Commission must decide whether to investigate (1) The Commission must make reasonable efforts to do the following things not later than 10 working days after the date by which the parties may comment on the application: a) decide whether or not to investigate the matter; b) give written notice of its decision to the parties; c) give public notice of its decision; d) request the parties to the determination to make submissions on the matter by written notice to the Commission not later than 10 working days after receipt of the notice from the Commission. (2) Subsection (1)(d) applies only if the Commission has decided under subsection (1)(a) to investigate the matter.
