Decisions made on the regulation of fibre service providers in New Zealand

On 13 October 2020, the New Zealand Commerce Commission published its first set of final decisions on the regulation of fibre service providers. A copy of the Commission’s final decision is available online.

CEPA is pleased to have assisted the Commission in developing its final decision on the allowed cost of capital for the regulated service providers. We were asked by the Commission to provide our views on the appropriate asset beta, leverage and credit rating for fibre service providers in New Zealand. Our report was published alongside the Commission’s decision.
