ACCC commences review of Telstra's retail price control arrangements

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission today began a review 
of the retail price control arrangements that apply to Telstra. 

The review is being conducted under a direction made by the Minister for 
Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy.

The review's terms of reference note that it is not intended for retail 
price control arrangements to now be discontinued, and that the ACCC 
should consider, amongst other things, the design and level of possible 
price control arrangements to apply from July 2010 to June 2012. 

The ACCC invites views from the public, to be provided by no later than 
12 February 2010, on the retail price control arrangements that they 
consider should apply to Telstra over this period. 

To assist people in making a submission, an ACCC discussion paper, and a 
copy of the minister's direction and explanatory statement, will be 
available on the ACCC's website: www.accc.gov.au 

The ACCC will finalise its review of these price control arrangements by 
12 March 2010.
