The Telecommunications Service Provider (Mobile Premium Services) Determination 2010 (No. 1) and Telecommunications Service Provider (Mobile Premium Services) Determination 2010 (No. 2) are due to sunset on 1 April 2021.
The determinations regulate the supply of mobile premium services (MPS) by carriage service providers (CSPs). MPS include ringtones, games, music, chats, news, voting and entry to competitions. They are usually accessed using SMS and MMS.
The consultation paper sets out our proposal to allow both MPS determinations to cease. This is on the understanding that industry will prepare a variation to the MPS Code. It will require CSPs to allow customers to bar MPS.
Industry body Communications Alliance is consulting on a proposed variation to the MPS Code in connection with this proposal.
