Following on from the earlier scope paper covering a review of the mobile market, TUANZ welcomes the broad range of questions raised in the Commerce Commissions Issues Paper released today.
“We are really pleased to see the holistic approach being taken by the Commission in this study. We have been calling for a fully independent study of the market structure for mobile services and so it’s positive to see the range of questions being raised in this papers.” Said Craig Young , CEO of TUANZ.
“We reiterate that our members have been clear to us that while they recognise that the NZ market has delivered improved competition and that there are areas we are well ahead of in comparison to other countries, they want to see this review as being comprehensive addressing the questions of where we are and what we need to ensure that strong competition remains in this market.” Said Mr Young.
The Chair of TUANZ, Liz Gosling (CIO Auckland University of Technology) reiterated that “As the truly independant representative group of users of these services, we will continue to fully engage with our members to ensure that their views are represented to the Commission as they undertake the next steps in this review.”
