The European Commission publishes Axon’s study assessing the cost of providing wholesale mobile services in the EU

The European Commission (EC) has published (link) Axon’s study assessing the cost of providing two types of mobile wholesale services in 31 EU/EEA countries: roaming and voice call termination.

The outcomes of this study will support the European Commission in its policy decisions with regards to the wholesale roaming caps and the mobile termination rates (the mobile Eurorates).

Launched in April 2018, the study has been carried out through several steps involving the EC, all NRAs and operators in the 31 EU/EEA countries, including the following:

  • A data collection and clarifications process
  • The development of a state-of-the-art cost model
  • Two workshops in EC’s headquarters
  • Two consultation rounds

The EC’s publication makes available all the key materials produced throughout this cost study to the general public. This includes a non-confidential version of the BULRIC cost model, an executive summary of the project’s outcomes, the official results produced by the model and extensive additional supporting information (manuals, presentations, etc.).
