I completely agree with Onsox's observations about the PR outcomes from the Vodafone offer and its effect on the ComCom decision.
I think the ComCom need to stick to the original arguement, as there is already enough evidence without the Vodafone Talk add-on. It appeared to be that the ComCom was hesitant to regulate as it should be the last option. This makes sense but i think that with the exisitng evidence and coupled with the fact this has taken so long and nothing has come out of it that is going to change the market place, something needs to happen and the last option  of regulation needs to be taken ASAP for any delays will only benifit the incumbents and not the consumer.

the other problem that will come out of all this is if they regulate what is the cost price?
do we just stick with the draft pricing? or is that too high as well?

Given that Vodafone and Telecom have agreed to $0 MTR for "balanced" SMS traffic then that would seem like a good starting block for SMS. should we just say $0 MTR for "balanced" Voice as well?
Is a simple Bill and Keep the best option to remove wholesale pricing completely from any equation?

Considering Mr Joyce threw the ComCom recommendation back to them, I'd have thought he's probably already made up his mind to regulate. I wouldn't have thought the ComCom will change the draft much after feedback from the telcos - what are they going to say " I promise no more on-net deals, trust us"???

Feedback is due May 19th, so they're not mucking around.

The Commerce Commission said eaqrly on that BAK was not an option on the table. BAK is what 2degrees (NZ Comms at the time) ultimately wanted.

The decision to move to BAK isn't something that can be made overnight. Ultimately we may move towards BAK in a IP works when everybody is running a core IMS network and IP peering but we are a long way from that.
