The supply of voice and messaging services in Australia and overseas has substantially evolved since the previous MTAS Declaration.

Commpete welcomes the opportunity to comment on Part B of the Department of Communications and the Arts (DoCA) Consumer Safeguards Review in relation to reliability of services.
It is Commpete’s view the MTAS should continue to be regulated by the ACCC because each MNO continues to have exclusive control of access to customers on their respective networks and as such there continues to be a risk that MNO’s could refuse or set anti-competitive terms of access to their networks.
Commpete represents challenger providers who are retailers and wholesalers of digital communication.
