The communications market report is made up of two parts:
- competitive safeguards within the Australian telecommunications industry
- changes in the prices paid by consumers for telecommunications services.
The ACCC was required to provide this report to the Minister annually for tabling in Parliament. However, following legislative changes in December 2019, the ACCC is required to publish this report on its website by 31 December of the relevant financial year. This change in reporting requirements takes effect from the 2018-19 report onwards.
