Chorus releases update of its FPP modelling data

“We will review the materials announced today and continue to work constructively within the Commerce Commission’s process as these draft prices are finalised."

The Commerce Commission has today released its draft Final Pricing Principle (FPP) determinations which propose an aggregate price of $38.39.

This compares to the aggregate $34.44 price that was previously derived from the Commission’s Initial Pricing Principle (IPP) benchmarking review.

The draft FPP individual product prices are:

· A draft UCLL price of $28.22; compared to $23.52 currently;

· A draft SLU price of $14.45; compared to $14.21 currently; and

· A draft UBA price of $10.17 compared to $10.92 currently.

“We will review the materials announced today and continue to work constructively within the Commerce Commission’s process as these draft prices are finalised,” says Mark Ratcliffe, CEO, Chorus.

“The aggregate price represents around a $6.50 decline from the regulated wholesale price of $44.98 that was in place until 1 December 2014, so consumers should not expect to see any increases in retail pricing."

On the basis that all other charges and demand remain consistent, Chorus estimates that the draft FPP pricing represents around an $80 million annualised EBITDA reduction from demerger pricing, based on connection numbers at 30 September 2014.

This compares to the aggregate annualised EBITDA reduction of around $170 million Chorus identified from the Commission’s earlier UCLL, UCLFS and UBA IPP decisions.

The Commission has not provided any guidance on backdating or on transaction charges at this stage.

The Commission has also announced that it is consulting on whether to open a review of the UBA service and the scope of any such review.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
