The telephony segment is highly dynamic in terms of technological change. This dynamism poses major challenges from the regulatory standpoint and that of business strategy.
LCA has considerable experience in the telephony segment, with outstanding expertise in Competition Economics and support from the Market Intelligence and Investment & Corporate Finance practices.
We provide decision support in the shape of market forecasting, economic feasibility studies, and economic and financial appraisal of regulatory changes.
We have participated actively in the debate on all the main regulatory issues, such as factor X (IPTF modeling, stochastic frontier analysis (DEA), the telecom service index (IST) used by Anatel for tariff review, basic subscription charges, voice user mobility (VUM), prepaid “social telephones” (AICE Program), Universal Service Target Plan (PGMU), and unbundling.
Over the years LCA has built a strong reputation with regulators and licensing authorities such as Anatel for its capabilities in developing solutions to mitigate regulatory risk, assure adequate profitability for carriers to expand services in Brazil, and enable the delivery of high-tech services to consumers at affordable prices.
