Mobile Termination Rates

Mobile termination rates are the fees mobile phone companies charge other carriers to terminate calls on their networks and are a significant input cost in providing the retail service of fixed-to-mobile and mobile-to-mobile calls.

The Commission released its final report containing its recommendation to the Minister on 9 June 2005.

On 9 August 2005 the Minister announced that he was requiring the Commission to reconsider its recommendation.

The Commission released its Mobile Termination Reconsideration final report on 21 April 2006, recommending that the termination rate for fixed-to-mobile calls be regulated. The Minister rejected the Commission's recommendations.

The Commission has recently been undertaking another investigation into Mobile Termination Access Services incorporating fixed to mobile termination, mobile to mobile termination and sms termination.
