Competition-enhancing costing and pricing standards for telecommunications interconnection by David Gabel Download PDF EPUB FB2
COSTING AND PRICING STANDARDS interconnecting firms should make to the maintenance and extension of universal service, as well as common and joint costs.
The Telecommunications Act requires that cost studies be used to set the price of unbundled and wholesale rate elements. The Act was designed to encourage efficient competition in theFile Size: 4MB. The liberalization of the telecommunications markets in Sub-Saharan Africa led to increased competition on the provision and pricing of communication services.
But, due to the lack of appropriate regulatory tools, newly established regulators are poorly equipped to arbitrate increasing interconnection disputes between competing operators.

In other words, the pricing framework and costing methodology to be adopted by the Authority should balance the requirement to make telecoms investment attractive, with the need to avoid cream-skimming of the most lucrative parts of the market. Setting cost-based prices for interconnection and access is an important means of achieving this balance.
Faced with increasing global competition, many telecom companies are finding that cost-based pricing is becoming a relic of the past, whereas price-based or target costing is emerging as a key. Go to General Telecommunications Framework to find examples of general frameworks that contain provisions regarding interconnection and price regulation.

Over time, operators have also developed cost models to analyse their own cost structures for regulatory and business purposes. With developments. interconnection services such as local interconnect, single tandem, and double tandem.

The Costing Methodology for the Telecommunications Sector 8 The requirement for cost-based pricing is clear in the Act in respect of interconnection services. Further, the need to adopt a single cost methodology for the telecommunications sector became even clearer to the Authority during the first interconnection dispute between TSTT and Digicel.

However, the provision of interconnection services, on fair and efficient terms, has rapidly emerged as a main bottleneck. In fact, new legislation and regulations enacted in Sub-Saharan Africa recognize the interconnection rights ascribed to all telecommunications service providers and network operators.
The pricing principles, pricing guides and specific cost-based methodology constitute the general approach the Commission currently intends to take. The Commission’s approach to access pricing may not be static.

This book systematically reviews recent pricing innovations in the economic theory of pricing, extending results to the conditions that characterize telecommunications by: Theoretical models based on the assumption that telecommunications is a natural monopoly no longer reflect reality.
As a result, policymakers often lack the guidance of economic theorists. Competition in Telecommunications is written in a style accessible to managers, consultants, government officials, and others.

“Competition-Enhancing Costing and Pricing Standards for Telecommunications Interconnection,” National Regulatory Research Institute, The Ohio State University, NRRI The liberalisation of telecommunications markets in most countries including Barbados and the evolution of new services also resulted in the need for regulation of interconnection between competing service providers, and heightened the importance of costing and cost modelling.a cost basis depends on many factors including the technical characteristics of the architectures, economic considerations and the actual situation of the operator.
Analysing the alternatives for the implementation of telecommunications networks, a thorough examination of the costs and the possible return on investment is necessary.
