Sunrise says cost of final mile is too high

21 Aug 2007

Sunrise, a subsidiary of Denmark’s TDC, has revealed that it will complain to regulator ComCom after failing to reach an agreement with Swisscom over the cost of access of ‘final mile’ from telephone exchanges to customer connection points. Per residential connection Swisscom charges CHF33.4 (USD27.7) including VAT per residential connection, well above the European average of CHF17, according to Sunrise. ComCom has seven months in which to establish what the charge should be.
