Telstra Appeals Australian Competition Decision

Telstra will appeal a determination by the Australian Competition Tribunal to overturn the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's (ACCC) decision to release Telstra from some wholesale local service regulation in the most competitive parts of metropolitan Australia.

"Telecommunications competition in metropolitan and suburban Australia is intense, with some areas having eight or more competitors with infrastructure in their exchanges, providing wide choice for consumers and businesses," said Telstra Group General Counsel, Mr Will Irving.
