Axon Reviews Portugal Telecom’s 73.5 million EUR Net Cost of Universal Service

Axon Consulting has recently completed the review of the net cost of universal service for Portugal Telecom, for the years 2007-2009.

This incumbent operator review forms part of a range of services carried out on behalf of the Portuguese telecoms regulator, Anacom.

The project covered a critical analysis and review of the methodological approach followed by the operator in the first practical implementation of the guidelines set by ANACOM, which has resulted in adjustments being made in the operator’s methodological and calculation assumptions and choices. As a result of the review, the provisional net cost of universal service for the years 2007-2009 has been preliminary established at 66.8 million EUR, which implies a decrease of 12.8 million EUR (-16%).

Axon Consulting has carried out various projects related to the net cost of universal service on behalf of European regulatory agencies in recent years (including Italy’s AGCOM, Spain’s CMT and Greece’s EETT), along with a range of similar projects for the European Commission and regulatory bodies in other geographies.
