Update and revision of the LRIC model

Considering that the "pure" LRIC1 model dates back to 2013, and given the technological and market developments observed in fixed communications in Portugal in the meantime and the length of time elapsed, ANACOM considers that the time is right to update and review the model to reflect these developments.

Accordingly, in August 2017, ANACOM decided to update and revise the fixed termination costing model, ensuring its consistency and compatibility with Recommendation 2009/396/EC http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2009:124:0067:0074:EN:PDF of the European Commission of 7 May 2009. This work was awarded to Analysys Mason, the entity responsible for formulation of the current model.

In order to start the work on updating and revising the fixed termination costing model, ANACOM is issuing a questionnaire, prepared by Analysys Mason, to compile relevant information from fixed operators in Portugal, by the end of 2017.
