ComReg consulting on price control obligations for bundled services

13 Jun 2017

Ireland’s Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg) has launched a consultation on a draft decision related to price control obligations for bundled services, which it notes relate primarily to price control and transparency obligations for three markets, those being: wholesale local access (WLA) at a fixed location; wholesale central access (WCA) for mass market products; and wholesale fixed voice access and call origination (‘FACO’). ComReg is seeking feedback on its preliminary view of the structure and implementation of a bundles margin squeeze test (‘MST’), with its draft decision particularly concerned with ensuring fixed line incumbent eir cannot cause a margin squeeze between the price of the regulated wholesale regulated services it offers to alternative operators and the price of its own retail bundles.

Interested parties have until 21 July 2017 to make submissions to the regulator regarding to the matter.
