This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on the 28th day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, replaces the description of Initial pricing principle for the designated access service Bundle of retail services offered by means of Telecom's fixed telecommunications network in subpart 1 of Part 2 of Schedule 1 of the Telecommunications Act 2001.
The effect of this amendment is that double discounting of pricecapped services for wholesale service bundles is eliminated and the initial pricing principle for these services is made consistent with the initial pricing principles for other designated services.
In accordance with that Act, the amendment is made on the recommendation of the Minister of Communications after accepting the recommendation of the Commerce Commission in its
“Final Report on the Initial Pricing Principle for Bundle of retail services offered by means of Telecom's fixed telecommunications network” dated 14 August 2003.
