"Reduction in call charges: Commerce Commission
3 Sep 2007 01:52:43
The Commerce Commission has announced further reductions in call charges from land lines, mobile phones, along with Internet charges.
The Commission says the new prices were ordered, as there is still room for consumers to benefit.
The Commerce Commission believes it has come as far as it can in reducing telecom prices for the benefit of consumers.
Three seperate determinations over the years have seen reductions of up to 70% in land lines, mobiles and internet usage.
However, the Commission has now indicated it wants to step aside, and let the market regulate itself.
The Chairman says even if the market is opened up, the Commission will monitor operations and anyone who steps out of line, will be taken to task.
The Commission has confirmed any new players will have to abide by the tariffs which come into effect from October 1st."
