Extension of decision making period4 Dec 2019

The ACCC has decided to extend the decision making period for the mobile terminating access service (MTAS) final access determination for a period of 6 months, to 6 June 2020.

The ACCC has been unable to make a final access determination for the MTAS within the initial inquiry period ending 6 December 2019. This is because the ACCC considers it appropriate to undertake further work to develop and implement the pricing methodology for the MTAS, including further consultation on the pricing methodology. 

The ACCC intends to issue a Position and Consultation paper in mid-December 2019 which will discuss the specific pricing methodology being developed by the ACCC to implement pricing for the MTAS in the new final access determination.
