The New Zealand government is seeking feedback on regulatory issues that might arise if Telecom New Zealand was to structurally separate. Telecom New Zealand recently announced that it is considering structural separation of its network and retail businesses in the context of the government's Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) Initiative and the company was shortlisted along with 13 other parties for the initiative.
Structural separation would have implications on: the regulatory regime for copper services; Telecom's operational separation undertakings; and the local service Telecommunications Service Obligations (TSO). The Ministry of Economic Development has released a discussion document and is seeking feedback before 15 October.
