In 2010 we completed our investigation into Telecom's resale services.
Resale services occur when Telecom provides its retail services on a wholesale basis to other telecommunications service providers.
Retail services are designated access services under subpart 1 of Part 2 of Schedule 1 of the Telecommunications Act 2001. The retail services which are currently resold by Telecom are:
retail services offered by means of Telecom's fixed telecommunications network (FTN)
residential local access and calling services offered by means of Telecom's FTN
bundle of retail services offered by means of Telecom's FTN
retail services offered by means of Telecom's FTN as part of bundle of retail services.
In addition to undertaking an investigation into whether or not resale services should be omitted from Schedule 1, we also noted that the investigation would consider whether the service descriptions of the resale services should be amended (if resale services are not omitted from Schedule 1).
