The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is seeking submissions on a draft report on trans-Tasman roaming services.

The draft report was prepared jointly by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and Australia’s Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE). It is based on traffic and revenue information provided by the two countries’ mobile operators for the calendar years 2009-2011, as well as an expert study prepared by the consultancy firm WIK.

Comments on the draft report, and the WIK expert study, must be received by 27 September 2012.



The publication of the draft report follows the announcement of a formal investigation into trans-Tasman roaming services by both governments in April 2011. That announcement was itself based on an analysis of operator traffic and revenue for the calendar years 2007-2009, and submissions received on a discussion paper published in May 2010.


Feedback and discussion welcomed

In addition to the formal engagement process, the Ministry welcomes stakeholder feedback at any time. If you would like to contact us, please email:
