Delay To Announcement On Pricing For Chorus’ Phone Lines

Media Release

Issued 19 November 2012

Release No. 42

Delay To Announcement On Pricing For Chorus’ Copper Phone Lines And Broadband Access

The Commerce Commission today announced a short delay to the final decision on the price Chorus can charge for its copper lines to now coincide with the draft decision on broadband access pricing.

The decisions were initially planned for Friday 23 and Friday 30 November respectively. Both will now be announced on Monday 3 December 2012.

The Commission has decided to combine the announcements because the new price for the copper lines (unbundled copper local loop or UCLL) has a direct impact on the draft price for the unbundled bitstream access (UBA) service.

“By making these announcements together, the Commission will be able to provide a more complete picture of the combined effect of both prices. It’s important to note that only the UCLL price is final, while the price for the UBA service is provisional and will be open for consultation,” said Dr Stephen Gale, Telecommunications Commissioner.
