Telecommunications wholesale pass-through study

The Commission regulates the wholesale inputs that are required to supply broadband services and retail fixed-line voice services.

We undertook this study to understand how retailers of telecommunications services have passed through price changes in regulated wholesale copper prices to retail prices charged to residential consumers purchasing fixed-line services.

The study looked at a sample of approximately 80,000 residential consumer bills from Spark, Vodafone and Vocus between March 2012 and June 2016.
