PTA proposes revision of Mila’s wholesale tariff for trunk segments of leased lines

30 Mar 2021

The Post and Telecom Administration (PTA) has sent a draft decision regarding the revision of Mila’s wholesale tariff for trunk segments of leased lines to the EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA), with the regulatory body given one month to submit its comments. In the submitted draft legislation, the PTA agrees to Mila’s request that the tariff for trunk segments of leased lines should be changed in its entirety in accordance with changes in the underlying costs for the trunk network, instead of updating cost models for different services. The PTA says that this does not disrupt the structure of tariffs that are currently in force and the consistency between tariffs in this market. However, the PTA considers it appropriate that in the next revision of the tariffs in the market, the cost model will be reviewed in its entirety. The tariff increase only applies to monthly fees, which will increase by 2.59%, while one-time fees, monthly fees for Sync-Ethernet and connections remain unchanged. Mila will be required to submit a revised cost model to the PTA in 2022.
