- local carriage service (LCS)
- fixed originating access service (FOAS)
- fixed terminating access service (FTAS)

The inquiry considered the appropriate price and non-price terms and conditions for access for these services.

On 30 August 2019, the ACCC released a draft decision for comment. Submissions closed on 30 September 2019.
