POTRAZ looks at LRIC model for mobile tariffs

1 Oct 2012

The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) has revealed plans to introduce a new cost-based pricing model for the country’s mobile operators. According to a report from TechZim, which cites local newspaper The Herald, the Long Run Incremental Cost (LRIC) method will be adopted by the watchdog. While the regulator currently implements a historical costing model, LRIC takes a forward-looking view of tariffs and is the costing model employed in most developed markets.
