In this public consultation document the Authority seeks comment from all interested parties on a particular set of guidelines that are to be employed to evaluate the legitimacy of retail service promotions.
In the Authority's view there currently exists little regulatory guidance with respect to service promotions. While Annex 5 to Cable & Wireless' ("C&W") Licence ("Annex 5") addresses the tariff treatment of C&W's retail and wholesale services, it does not explicitly address the tariff treatment of C&W's retail service promotions. To-date, the Authority has evaluated the legitimacy of Cable & Wireless (C&W) promotions on a case-by-case basis. Hence, the purpose of the guidelines in this public consultation is to reduce regulatory uncertainty by providing Licensees an understanding of how the Authority will evaluate and determine the legitimacy of service promotions.
