On 30 September 2010 the ACCC issued a final report varying the domestic transmission capacity service (DTCS) declaration. In the final report the ACCC decided to vary the DTCS service description to include Ethernet network interfaces. The declaration expires on 31 March 2014.
On 24 August 2007 Telstra lodged an exemption application from the standard access obligations of the DTCS in 20 capital-regional routes. In support of its application Telstra provided a submission, a Telstra employee witness statement and two reports from CRA and Market Clarity.
The ACCC invited submissions on any aspect of the exemptions, and undertook to publish a discussion paper and a timetable for submissions from interested parties in order to undertake a public consultation process on the exemptions.
