On 21 August 2009, the ACCC released draft pricing principles and indicative prices for the six fixed line wholesale services for public consultation.
On 3 December 2009 the ACCC announced a fundamental review of the Access Pricing Principles for telecommunications services. As a result of the review, the ACCC decided to maintain the current pricing principles and indicative prices for fixed line services until 31 December 2010.
The ACCC concluded its fixed network services declaration inquiry in July 2009 and extended the declaration of each of the six fixed line services for a period of five years until 31 July 2014.
In light of the extension of the declaration period for these services the ACCC reconsidered the pricing principles and developed its preliminary views on the indicative prices that should apply.
