Airnet NZ Ltd, Consumer New Zealand, Federated Farmers of New Zealand, the Federation of Maori Authorities, the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations, the Telecommunications Users Association of New Zealand, 2degrees Ltd and the Unite union will hold a joint media conference at 2pm, Tuesday 11 August in the Duxton 1 Room, at the Duxton Hotel, 170 Wakefield Street, Wellington.
The media conference is to launch a campaign in favour of the Commerce Commission’s draft recommendation on mobile termination rates which Telecom and Vodafone use to prevent genuine competition in the New Zealand telecommunications market.
