nicks:

 

 For example, would we see a new Trans-Tasman telco removing roaming rates across the Tasman as a point of difference but needing to raise them in other parts of the would due to loss of scale. 

 

 

Well Vodafone AU don't charge roaming rates in NZ - you just use your plan rate / mins.

 

Vodafone NZ simply don't need to offer a deal like that because there is no competitive need for them to sacrifice the revenue - they already have the best roaming option by far out of the networks in NZ.

 

The irony of all of this is that ~10 years ago when VF NZ and AU wanted to scrap roaming charges they were basically told off the record by both the ACCCC and Commerce Commission that such a move would be deemed anti competitive, which is the whole irony of competition regulators who's job is not to ensure competition in a marketplace, not necessarily the best deal to the customer.

A possible scenario In a few months Telstra would be clear to buy Spark without ComCom complications and Vocus buying Vodafone Australia and New Zealand and 2D left alone.

The irony is which is that 20 years ago Telecom NZ buying into Telecom Australia when privatisation was being considered was given serious thought.

Yep I wonder if this will all turn out like Telecoms lack lustre ventures across the ditch.

 I would hope not - certainly not on their cable network, anyway. If customers connected to that are unhappy with the crappy performance now, it makes the mind boggle to think what a price increase would make them do!

Do you have inside information that this is going to happen or just speculating.
