The Authority is consulting on Telecoms WACC and Margin Squeeze Guidelines. An outline of both Consultations can be found below:

Telecoms WACC Consultation

This consultation relates to the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) which determines the return licensed operators can earn on their regulatory asset bases. It is a key parameter when it comes to setting prices in markets which are subject to cost orientation.

Consultation on Margin Squeeze Guidelines

In October 2017 the Communications and Utilities Regulatory Authority (the Authority) published its second version of the Guidelines on Assessment of Margin Squeeze. These guidelines set out the high level principles that the Authority would take into account when conducting a margin squeeze assessment. The Authority is of the view that it is appropriate to update these guidelines.

The Consultation on Margin Squeeze Guidelines is available to view here.
