Background

The Mobile Terminating Access Service final access determination inquiry will determine the price and non-price terms and conditions for the Mobile Terminating Access Service. These terms and conditions will apply where there is no commercial agreement between an access seeker and the access provider. The final access determination made will create a benchmark that the parties can fall back on when they are unable to negotiate access terms and conditions.

The ACCC commenced consultation on non-price terms and conditions on 23 May 2014, with the release of a position paper seeking views on non-price terms and conditions including the Mobile Terminating Access Service. This consultation was concluded on 24 August 2015. The common non-price terms and conditions determined in this consultation process apply to the Mobile Terminating Access Service. 

More information on this consultation can be found on the non-price terms and conditions webpage.
