On 19 December 2018 the ACCC made binding rules of conduct that apply to a DTCS service to Christmas Island provided by Vocus Communications Limited.
Vocus will provide transmission services between mainland Australia and the External Territory of Christmas Island by way of a subsea cable.
On 6 June 2019, the ACCC decided to extend the existing final access determinations (FADs) for the declared fixed line services (LCS, WLR, LSS, ULLS, FOAS, FTAS, WADSL). The ACCC extended these FADs as it was not in a position to make the new FADs prior to their expiration on 30 June 2019. The existing fixed line services FADs were extended to expire on the date immediately before the day on which the new FADs come into force.
