PTS scraps LRIC wholesale pricing calculation

11 Jun 2014

Sweden’s Post & Telecom Agency (PTS) has decided that from 1 July 2014 it will no longer use the widely-adopted Long Run Incremental Cost (LRIC) methodology for calculating cost-oriented wholesale network access prices in its regulatory decisions. The regulator revoked regulations which mandate the usage of the LRIC method while putting in place the necessary transitional provisions for several existing service provider obligation decisions which refer to the LRIC regulations.
