xlinknz: Well if no Telco's drop their rates what can I do ?
If 2degrees won't and VFNZ and or TCNZ do then that will put market pressure on 2degrees. If VFNZ do and 2degrees don't I'll change on principle away from 2degrees
Surely the govt will have to step in if it the Telco's don't drop their rates otherwise it makes a mockery of the regulation
And shows Steven Joyce hasn't a clue when it comes to mobile price reductions.
I look forward to the wholesale price reductions announced today being passed through to consumers and the continued development of a competitive mobile market in New Zealand.
Minister welcomes Mobile Termination Rates decision
Communications and Information Technology Minister Steven Joyce welcomed the Commerce Commission’s final determination on Mobile Termination Access Services (MTAS) today.
“In August 2010 I accepted the Commerce Commission’s recommendation that MTAS should be regulated because I was satisfied that regulation would improve competition and lower prices to the long term benefit of end users”, says Mr Joyce.
“This process has been a long time in the making. I am pleased to see it come to a conclusion and I am confident that the Commission has reached a balanced and reasonable decision.”
“I look forward to the wholesale price reductions announced today being passed through to consumers and the continued development of a competitive mobile market in New Zealand.”
MTAS refers to the wholesale prices charged by a mobile network operator (such as Telecom, Vodafone and 2degrees) for providing services to customers from other network operators.
