On 7 August 2018 the ACCC commenced an inquiry into whether to extend, vary or revoke the domestic mobile terminating access service (MTAS) declaration, or make a new declaration. The ACCC issued a discussion paper inviting submissions on the declaration review by 14 September 2018.
MTAS access determination inquiry
On 28 November 2018 the ACCC decided to defer the commencement of the MTAS access determination inquiry until the current MTAS declaration inquiry is finalised. The ACCC anticipates making a decision on the MTAS declaration inquiry in early 2019. The ACCC will commence an access determination inquiry for the MTAS if it decides to extend and/or vary the current MTAS declaration, or make a new declaration.
