The Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) allows people who are deaf, hearing impaired or speech impaired to place calls to mobile or landline telephones using a keyboard or other device.
The Commission determines the total cost to the Government to provide relay services each year, which is then paid for from the Telecommunications Development Levy.
Sprint is contracted to provide relay services to meet the communication needs of the deaf, deafblind, hearing impaired, and speech impaired. Sprint is compensated for the provision of the relay services by the Government.
The current TRS cost calculation covers the period from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.
Here you will find previous TRS cost calculations.
