During the domestic mobile roaming declaration inquiry, the ACCC received submissions from many regional stakeholders regarding regional mobile issues, such as inadequate mobile coverage and coverage information. At the end of the inquiry, the ACCC released a separate paper Measures to address regional mobile issues, which discussed a number of measures which could improve outcomes for regional mobile consumers, including measures that could:
- increase the transparency of network quality and coverage information so consumers can make informed decisions
- reduce the costs of deploying and improving mobile networks
- ensure that competition issues are taken into account to the radiocommunications regulatory regime.
The ACCC is actively working on the proposed measures, including through engaging closely with industry and other government bodies where relevant. This page provides updates on the ACCC's progress in implementing these measures.
