Telecommunications Wholesale and Retail Fixed Market Review 2019

Closes 31 May 2019

Opened 5 Apr 2019

Overview

The Telecommunication Wholesale and Retail Fixed Market Review 2019 invites views on proposals for the definitions of relevant telecommunications markets, Significant Market Power determinations, and proposed obligations to remedy identified competition issues. Provisions for conducting market reviews and placing additional obligations on operators with significant market power are contained within the licences issued under Section 5 of the Telecommunications Act 1984 (of Tynwald). 

The full document is available below as a PDF and includes draft Decision Notices which set out the proposed final determinations and additional obligations, and this constitutes a notification of proposed determinations as required in each operators’ Licence. The Communications Commission (the Commission) will consider representations before publishing final Decision Notices.

The foreword to the document explains how to submit views. 

The consultation asks specific questions based on information provided in the full market review document, respondees should consider this information in any response and refer back to it.  Responses will be fully considered before the Commission publishes its final Decision Notices, which will constitute the market power determinations and remedies. As such it is important for respondees to ensure they have included sufficient rationale, objective justification, and/or evidence in their responses.

If you wish to discuss the issues and questions raised in this consultation, or simply seek clarification, please contact the Commission.
