Nkom consults on price regulation, accounting separation rules for fixed-wireless broadband

16 Jun 2021

Norway’s National Communications Authority (Nasjonal kommunikasjonsmyndighet, Nkom) has launched a consultation on its proposed price regulation of fixed-wireless broadband connectivity, as well as the requirements for accounting separation for access to such services.

In a press release regarding the matter the regulator noted that it had previously confirmed back in October 2020 that fixed line incumbent Telenor Norge would be required to offer wholesale access to fixed-wireless broadband at prices which ensure buyers do not face a margin squeeze. Now, with the Nkom’s consultation including a margin squeeze model, along with the associated principles for designing that model, it has set a deadline of 2 July 2021 for the submission of comments.
