Study period: 1997-2000

(Former TAF Group Chairman)

Taf membership
TAF membership

  • 48 countries

  • low teledensities

  • large diversity of situations

Main goals
Main goals

  • telephone services tariffs

  • Build a common basis in order to help the international telephone network operators calculate/negotiate their settlement rates;

  • provide the telephone network operators with a computer tool in order to calculate the telephone services tariffs

D 600r main pillars
D.600R main pillars

  • Take into consideration de differences within the Group;

  • practicability -> type of data needed for both cost and traffic information;

  • interdependence of services cost;

  • includes access costs;

  • no more ceiling;

  • default and reference values -> Client-Server

Extension of the principles
Extension of the principles

  • Satisfy the regulatory needs: USO policy setting;

  • tariff rebalancing

  • satisfy the needs expressed by regulators and operators as regards interconnection:

    • interconnection costing;

    • USO costs determination and reallocation;

    • USO policies simulation

Bdt support
BDT support

  • Practical cost, tariff and interconnection calculation workshops: The TAF model have been applied to more than 20 countries and has been declared mature before the BDT engage the final software development

  • individual support to operators and regulators (country case studies);

  • commercial version of the TAF software to be available early next year

Lessons learned on modelling costs

The model acceptance depends on the availability of the mandatory data

Usefulness to NRA: provide means to avoid regulatory arbitrages

Usefulness to operators

Obtained upon usage of consistent data, the model based tariffs should guarantee reasonable profit to an operator;

field trials needed before final acceptance
