Telecommunications Act: Investigation of extension of regulated services

At this stage, the Commission considers that there are reasonable grounds to investigate ten of the thirteen services, including the interconnection, retail, national roaming and number portability services, and co-location on cellular mobile transmission sites.
The preliminary view paper is available on the Commission’s website at: http://www.comcom.govt.nz/IndustryRegulation/Telecommunications/Investigations/reviewofregulatedservices.aspx
The Commission invites submission from interested parties on this paper by 30 September 2005.
