Barbados regulator caps flow prices

The Fair Trading Commission (FTC) of Barbados has determined price caps on Flow Barbados, the merged operation of Cable & Wireless Communications and Columbus Communications. Frontier Economics advised the FTC on the scope and design of the new price cap plan, and provided financial analysis which determined the appropriate level of the price cap following the merger.

The price caps limit annual increases in price for certain fixed telephony service to no more than 3% for the next three years. The Price Cap Plan 2016 differed from previous price caps as it applies to all customers, including those served by the cable television network, acquired as part of the acquisition of Columbus last year.

Frontier regularly advises organisations and regulators on competition and policy issues in the telecommunications sector.
