Telecommunications access dispute

30 December 2004

Telstra Corporation Limited has notified the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission of an access dispute with Optus Mobile Pty Limited, under Part XIC of the Trade Practices Act 1974.

The dispute relates to the price paid by Telstra for the Domestic Mobile Terminating Access Service* supplied by Optus by means of its mobile network.

The ACCC has commenced the arbitration process for this access dispute.

Given that the legislation contemplates that arbitrations be conducted in private, the ACCC will not be making any public comment at this stage.
