WIK report30 Jan 2007

To support future MTAS pricing principles determinations, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission issued a request for tender in March 2006 seeking the services of a consultant to construct a bottom-up cost model with specific economic and engineering parameters for mobile termination access services in Australia. WIK Consult was engaged in June 2006 and worked with the ACCC to develop a bottom-up cost model that would estimate the efficient cost of supplying the MTAS in Australia using a total services long-run incremental cost conceptual framework.
