13 Mar 2013

(MENAFN) Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) stated that it has set the capital cost for regulated telecommunications services at 9.5 percent, reported Gulf Daily News.

The TRA stressed that the cost of capital is very important as it affects the cost base of telco operators and the price paid by clients for telecom services.

The authority noted that it took into account several factors when setting the new cost, including international best practices, latest available market information, regulatory precedents and the current economic environment.

It also said that the 9.5-percent rate is fair and reasonable, adding that it offers the right investment incentives and prevents excessive profits.
