Court rejects Telstra's appeal against LSS decisions

Telstra's appeal against three recent ACCC decisions in LSS disputes has been largely rejected by the Federal Court, with the judge finding the ACCC erred in just two minor matters.

The Federal Court has mostly dismissed Telstra's (ASX:TLS) appeal against a series of decisions the ACCC had made in recent line sharing services (LSS) disputes.

The presiding judge, Justice Lindgren, found merit in just two of the 11 grounds for appeal Telstra had filed, finding that the ACCC erred in its handling of a minor, one-off disconnection charge.

But the judgement has confirmed the ACCC's overall approach to setting prices for LSS, including fixing a rental charge at $2.50 per month.

The matter will be back before the court on October 22, when the final orders will be heard.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
