The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa announced it has adopted the Long-Run Incremental Cost Plus (LRIC+) method to determine the cost of mobile and fixed wholesale voice call termination. The regulator said the LRIC+ method would allow operators to recover a portion of joint and common costs incurred in the provision of wholesale termination and ensure continued investment in networks in South Africa. According to ICASA, LRIC+ will correct the imbalances created in 2010 when the call termination Regulations applied different cost standards to different markets.
