As part of its MTAS final access determination, the ACCC has been reviewing the fees charged by network operators for receiving a call or SMS message from a different network. The ACCC has found these fees to be too high and above the actual cost of providing the service. It released a consultation paper on 1 August 2014 canvassing views on the best ways to price these services in order to promote competition and benefit consumers. Submissions were due on 29 August 2014.
