New Zealand bills telcos for development levy

The New Zealand Commerce Commission released its final decision on how much each of the country's 15 telecommunications providers must pay toward the NZ$50 million Telecommunications Development Levy for 2015 through 2016.

More than 90% of the contributions will be shouldered by the top four telecom companies, the regulator announced Dec. 19.

Spark New Zealand Ltd., the country's biggest telco, will pay NZ$18.9 million. Vodafone Group Plc unit Vodafone NZ owes NZ$13.1 million, while Chorus is due for NZ$11.1 million and 2Degrees Mobile will pay NZ$3.6 million, iTWire reported Dec. 19.

The annual levy goes toward New Zealand's telecommunications infrastructure, which includes broadband for rural areas, enhancements to the national 111 emergency service and a relay service for the deaf and hearing impaired, according to NZ ComCom.

As of Dec. 19, US$1 was equivalent to NZ$1.44.
