The ACCC has decided not to object to Australia Post’s draft proposal to increase the prices of ordinary letter services delivered to its regular timetable, including the basic postage rate (BPR) from $1.00 to $1.10.
Australia Post is not proposing to increase the price of priority labels (50 cents), concession stamps (60 cents) or stamps for seasonal greeting cards (65 cents), such as Christmas cards.
Australia Post has submitted to the ACCC for assessment a proposal to increase the price of its ordinary letter services, including stamps.
Australia Post operates a two-speed letter service, which was introduced for consumers in 2016.
Under Australia Post’s proposal, the basic postage rate charged for ordinary small letters delivered to its regular timetable would rise from $1.00 to $1.10.
The price of delivering ordinary large letters at the regular timetable would rise by 10 per cent.
