Analyst: Kylie Wansink


During the 1984-2001 period New Zealand did not have a separate regulatory environment for the telecom industry. This changed with a new Telecommunications Bill, which was passed in December 2001. Deregulation arrived in 1984 as part of a total overhaul of the NZ economy. In fear of being left behind in the global economy, the country produced a flood of economic reforms, which included a total deregulation of the telecom market. This report outlines the country’s regulatory developments from 1984 to 1999 and includes Paul Budde’s analysis of the environment as it was in 1999.
