It's time to move on

It's time to move on

InternetNZ isn't surprised by the Court of Appeal's decision in rejecting Chorus' attempts to overrule the High Court.

As is its right, Chorus sought leave to appeal the High Court's ruling on the Commerce Commission’s decisions regarding Initial Pricing Principle (IPP) for copper broadband services. The High Court ruled strongly that the Commerce Commission got it right and now the Court of Appeal has done the same.

InternetNZ Chief Executive Jordan Carter says that with the High Court having been so unequivocal in its judgement, and now the Court of Appeal equally so, it's time for the industry to pull together to get some certainty.

“Both Courts have now made it very clear that the Commerce Commission got it right all along. Every other part of the industry except Chorus is saying the IPP price is fair and that the regulatory environment is working exactly how it should. We should be moving on."
