Spark urges regulator to review Chorus wholesale charges

Tuesday 24 February 2015 | 08:56 CET | News
Spark New Zealand has urged the Commerce Commission to rework its numbers and consult with industry players before it finalises the new charges later this year. Spark claims that industry input costs – which influence the retail prices for broadband services and landline phones – may be at least NZD 12 per month more per customer than they should be if the Commerce Commission goes ahead with proposed new charges for access to the Chorus copper wholesale network.
