This report was archived in September 2007 and has not been updated since May 2005. The report reviews the underlying policy issues pertinent to the Inquiry that looks into the merger of the Australian Communications Authority (ACA) and the Australian Broadcasting Authority (ABA) aimed at establishing the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). The Telecommunications Act 1997 did not deliver the outcomes envisaged and as a result, a review needs to be carried out. Structural separation between infrastructure and services is certainly an important factor, as discussed in separate reports, and increased regulatory power is the other key ingredient. The super regulator models from the UK and USA can be used as a guide to develop our own model. As suggested in my 2005 submission to the government, a Senate Commission could be set up to investigate this further.
