ANRT orders Maroc Telecom to revise its leased line offer

16 Jul 2014

Moroccan telecoms watchdog, the Agence Nationale de Reglementation de Telecom (ANRT), has ordered domestic fixed line incumbent telco Maroc Telecom to amend some of the terms and conditions of its wholesale leased line access offer, following a complaint filed by rival Medi Telecom (Meditel) in March 2014.

The watchdog ruled that Maroc Telecom must amend its wholesale tariffs in order to ensure a gross profit margin of 50% for alternative operators. In addition, the telco must amend the maximum distance between operator and point of presence (PoP) to a range of between 35km and 100km and include intermediate bandwidth of 4Mbps, 8Mbps and 20Mbps with minimum gross profit margin of 20% for alternative providers. Maroc Telecom has been given a deadline of 1 January 2015 by which to revise the terms and conditions of its fixed interconnection offer.
