By decision of 1 July 2015, ANACOM has approved draft decisions for notification to the European Commission (EC), the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) and the national regulatory authorities of the other Member States of the European Union (EU) concerning:
- the wholesale markets of voice call termination on individual mobile networks and definition of product and geographic markets, assessment of significant market power (SMP) and imposition, maintenance, amendment or withdrawal of regulatory obligations, and
- the mobile termination costing model - specification of obligation to control prices.
As a result of the analysis, it was found that all undertakings providing the voice call termination service on mobile networks have significant market power, whereby these companies were made subject to a range of regulatory obligations on an ex-ante basis, including an obligation to control prices. Pursuant to this obligation, the maximum prices that these companies can apply in the provision of the voice call termination service on mobile networks are set based on the results of the "pure" LRIC costing model developed specifically for the Portuguese market. The maximum prices are therefore set at 0.83 eurocents per minute, entering into force 10 days following approval of the final decision on these markets.
Approval was also given, on the same date, to the reports of the prior hearing and public consultation to which the corresponding draft decisions were submitted following determination of 16 April 2015.
