Can anyone point to "published" information on the wholesale interconnectio and termination costs of call and SMS termination for:

Vodafone -> Telecom Mobile SMS messages
Telecom Mobile -> Vodafone SMS messages
Vodafone -> Telecom Mobile voice calls
Telecom Mobile -> Vodafone voice calls
Vodafone -> Telecom landline voice calls
Telecom landline -> Vodafone voice calls

There are a few articles that hint at these costs:

And I can't immediately see any information on the Commerce Commission website.   But I am sure I did see these costs published awhile ago.

I am just curious to see what sort of margins the mobile telcos are making on a call basis....

Would it be safe to assume that this sort of information is very commercially sensitive thus not easily accessible??

I do recall something with the commerce commission with reducing interconnection fees... But there are still a lot of factors to consider rather than just comparing the 'fees' and what retails to the end user.

Well it is very commercially sensitive, but regulated environments are funny things...

I note in the UK, Ofcom has published this information in the past.    When the Commerce Commission investigates, sometimes they make this sort of information public.

I would like to know what a small network would be charged for termination fees. So far Vodafone just has said 20c per text message. Hopefully it would be reduced if you negotiated an interconnection agreement with them.
