TERA’s report on pricing of access to the copper local loop in Ireland
TERA has conducted a study for the Irish regulatory authority ComReg (The Commission for Communications Regulation) aimed at analyzing the various valuation methodologies available to ComReg for the copper local loop.
The goal was to set wholesale Local Loop Unbundling, Sub Loop Unbundling, Naked DSL and wholesale line rental prices.
One of the specificities of this study is that geographic differences between urban and rural areas have been carefully taken into consideration.
TERA also considered the Commission recommendation of 11 September 2013 on consistent non-discrimination obligations and costing methodologies to promote competition and enhance the broadband investment environment.
The report written by TERA is available at:
TERA also assisted ComReg to develop a copper local loop cost model using detailed geomarketing data about Ireland.
