The project objective was to set the Eurorate applicable to fixed voice termination services in the EU/EEA Member States, on behalf of the European Commission (EC).
With the entry into force of the new EECC (European Electronic Communications Code), the EC had the obligation to set a uniform fixed termination rate (Single Eurorate) for all the EEA (European Economic Area) Member States. The Single Eurorate should be applicable from 2021 onwards.
For this purpose, the EC commissioned Axon to develop fixed costing bottom-up models (BULRIC) for all of the 31 EEA Member States. The project included the following specific activities:
The outcomes of the project were relied on to define the regulatory framework for interconnection rates applicable in all EEA Member States from 2021 onwards. The publicly available files and documents prepared by Axon can be found here.
