In this study for Telstra, an Australian telecommunications and media company, NERA Special Consultant Nigel Attenborough describes the commonly accepted essential attributes of a TSLRIC+ model. The study sets out what are commonly accepted as the essential attributes of a TSLRIC+ model; identifies the extent to which Telstra's TEA model embodies these attributes; and assesses whether, assuming that appropriate inputs are used in the TEA model, a reasonable estimate of the TSLRIC+ of supplying the ULLS is provided by the model.
