The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission declares, pursuant to section 152AL(3) of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (the Act), that the local bitstream access service (LBAS) is a "declared service" for the purposes of Part XIC of the Act.
On 4 June 2014, the ACCC decided to extend the existing final access determination (FAD) for the mobile terminating access services (MTAS). The ACCC is extending this FAD as it will not be in a position to make a new MTAS FAD prior to its expiration on 30 June 2014.
The MTAS FAD is now extended to expire on the date immediately before the day on which a new FAD comes into force.
On 16 April 2014, the ACCC decided to extend the existing the final access determinations (FADs) for the declared fixed line services (LCS, WLR, LSS, ULLS, PSTN OA (FOAS as of 1 August 2014), PSTN TA (FTAS as of August 1 2014) and the wholesale ADSL service. The ACCC is extending these FADs as it will not be in a position to make the new fixed line services and the wholesale ADSL service FADs prior to their expiration.
