The new ITU Practical Guide on Benchmarking Telecommunications Prices developed by the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) is now released and available free of charge at the website www.itu.int/en/ITU-D/Regulatory-Market/Pages/Studies.aspx. This practical guide explains how to develop a benchmark of telecommunications prices in a converged broadband environment. Why a regulator might want to do so, how to do, and how the benchmark should be interpreted and applied. The steps involved are explained with reference to hypothetical benchmarking exercises together with actual price benchmarks developed by communications sector regulators.
