MCA looks to cut fixed termination rates

10 Oct 2012

Telecoms regulator the Malta Communications Authority (MCA) has launched public consultation for a proposed new cost structure for fixed core and access services. The MCA has proposed the introduction of rates based on a Bottom-Up Long Run Incremental Cost (BU-LRIC) model. A proposed glide path would see fixed termination rates drop from a current average – at present, rates vary depending on time of day – of EUR0.0072 per minute to EUR0.0038 by June 2013, and EUR0.00046 by end-December 2013.
