Extension of regulated telecommunications services
29 August 2006/029
Commission recommends extension of regulated telecommunications services
The Commission today released its final report on whether regulation of ten telecommunications services should be extended for two years.
The report recommends that regulation of all ten services under review be extended for two years from 19 December 2006. The services are the interconnection, retail resale, national roaming and number portability services, and co-location on cellular mobile transmission sites. It is the Commission’s view that in the case of all ten services under investigation, an extension of the period of regulation will promote competition and lead to benefits for consumers.
The report is available on the Commission’s website at www.comcom.govt.nz under Telecommunications, Investigations.
