Telecommunications Act: Commission receives two applications for access to regulated bitstream service
The Commerce Commission has received applications from ihug Limited and Callplus Limited requesting access determinations under the Telecommunications Act 2001 in relation to the provision of bitstream by Telecom New Zealand Limited.
Both ihug and Callplus are seeking access to the bitstream service on a nationwide basis, and have requested terms of access that are largely the same as those determined by the Commission in the TelstraClear bitstream determination (Decision 568) released on 20 December 2005. As part of that determination, the Commission required Telecom to provide bitstream access that has an unconstrained downstream speed.
The Commission has asked
the relevant parties to provide comments on the applications
before it decides whether or not to investigate the
Copies of the applications are available on the Commission website.
