Nkom to use EC’s method for calculating interest on regulated prices

5 Apr 2022

Norway’s National Communications Authority (Nasjonal kommunikasjonsmyndighet, Nkom) has announced that it will now use the EC’s method for calculating interest with regards to regulated prices in the country’s communications markets.

In a press release Nkom said that following EU harmonisation it has adopted a new common weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of 5.33% for both fixed and mobile networks, with this replacing previous interest rates of 8.3% and 9.1% for regulated prices in the fixed and mobile sectors, respectively.

According to Nkom, the new interest charge is in line with the EC’s guidelines from 6 November 2019, which are intended to ensure that WACC is calculated in a consistent manner across the various European Economic Area (EEA) countries.
