PTS lowers mobile call termination rate under ‘more accurate’ model

26 Jun 2014

Sweden’s National Post and Telecom Agency (PTS) has lowered the country’s unified mobile call termination rate (MTR) to SEK0.0815 (USD0.0121) per minute (down from SEK0.09), valid from 1 July 2014, following a revision of its cost-oriented wholesale pricing calculation model. The regulator states that its new wholesale calculation model is more accurate than its previous model due to using the latest ‘actual’ statistics on traffic volumes in mobile networks rather than previous data based on volume forecasts, while guidance prices are now provided to two additional decimal places.
