On 6 October 2011, the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) published a mobile termination rate (MTR) benchmark snapshot. This provided data on the MTRs in each of the BEREC member countries as at 1 July 2011. It includes the average effective mobile termination tariffs by operator in each country and the average mobile termination tariff per country. BEREC also published its annual report on regulatory accounting practice. This summarises the findings of a detailed survey of regulatory accounting frameworks across Europe, and the report’s analysis of key wholesale markets suggests a clear preference for cost orientation across Member States.
DotEcon is currently providing expert support to BT in relation to the Competition Appeal Tribunal review of Ofcom’s determination on mobile termination rates to be set within the UK.
