ACCC calls for industry comment on fixed line services pricing

September 25 deadline for submissions

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued draft pricing principles and indicative prices for six fixed line wholesale services, which allow Telstra competitors to provide fixed voice and broadband services over Telstra’s copper network.

The ACCC draft principles cover the next three years and proposes that the following services are priced on a cost basis:

  • Unconditioned local loop service (ULLS)
  • Line sharing service (LSS)
  • Public switched telephone network originating access (PSTN OA) service
  • Public switched telephone network terminating access (PSTN TA) service
  • Local carriage service (LCS)
  • Wholesale line rental (WLR) service.

The indicative pricing is aimed at guiding the industry in negotiations of terms and conditions of access.

The competition watchdog is now calling for comment on the draft by September 25. Further information can be found at the ACCC Web site.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
