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. OUR's view is that either of these two approaches would be acceptable. • The types of interconnection services to be offered by a dominant fixed network shouldFile Size: KB. 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.
