ISPA: BT should think again about proposed Usage Based Charging
The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA) has asked BT Wholesale to reconsider its Usage Based Charging (UBC) pricing scheme following a recent meeting in which the initial information on the UBC pricing was discussed for IPStream services. The UBC pricing structure is intended to add to the existing Capacity Based Charging (CBC) system which is better suited to larger providers. It is hoped UBC would provide a solution to the smaller providers affected by the huge price increases on IPStream Office services that BT Wholesale introduced at the beginning of September to comply with Ofcom's regulatory model.
