Project overview



The ACCC is holding a public inquiry under Part 25 of the Telecommunications Act 1997 (Cth) about proposals to make final access determinations for 3 voice interconnection services:

  • The mobile terminating access service
  • The fixed terminating access service
  • The fixed originating access service

Final access determinations are written determinations that may set out the terms and conditions for accessing specific declared services.

This inquiry follows the ACCC’s recent decision to extend the declarations of these services until 30 June 2029 following a public inquiry. The ACCC also extended the declarations of 4 other services following the same public inquiry.

The ACCC is holding 2 other public access determination inquiries for those services:

  1. Resale fixed line services access determinations
    • Wholesale line rental
    • Local carriage service
    • Wholesale ADSL
  2. Domestic transmission capacity service access determination

On 16 July 2024, the ACCC published a discussion paper. Submissions in response to the discussion paper close by 5pm (AEST) 27 August 2024.
