ACCC Commits To Regulating Wholesale ADSL
First announced back in October, the ACCC has today confirmed its intentions to regular the wholesale ADSL market for another 5 years.
They say the move will promote the long-term interests of customers during the transition to the NBN by helping to create a more competitive retail sector, an outcome “likely to deliver greater choices for end users in the form of better prices, service quality and service options,” says ACCC Commissioner Cristina Cifuentes.
“Continued access to wholesale ADSL services remains in the transition to the NBN and is critical to enable retail providers to compete with the dominant provider, Telstra, in the supply of high speed broadband services nationally,” Cifuentes said.
The regular claims that industry submissions broadly supported the decision.
