Application for Authorization of Revising Optical Subscriber Line Interconnection Charges

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation (“NTT East”) today applied to the Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications for authorization to change the Articles of Agreement Concerning Interconnection to Designated Telecommunications Facilities with regards to the interconnection charges for optical subscriber lines. Interconnection charges have been calculated based on the interconnection accounting of the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010. Revisions would be applied beginning with the fiscal year ending March 31, 2012.

1.Proposed Interconnection Charges

Category Revised Charges*3 Current Charges
For FY2011*1 For FY2012 For FY2013
Optical Subscriber Line 4,194yen
Optical Main Subscriber Line Under Shared Access System*2 3,756yen

The above represent monthly charges per single-core cable for Type 1-1 (daytime and weekday support in case of malfunction).
Figures inside the [ ] represent the percent change from the current charges.

  • *1The applicable charges for FY2011 include the price gap during the current interconnection charge period (FY2008 to FY2010) between actual revenues and actual costs (for FY2010, the price gap is between forecasted revenues and forecasted costs). (365 yen out of 4,194 yen for optical subscriber line, and 356 yen out of 3,756 yen for optical main subscriber line under the shared access system)
  • *2The outside optical splitter charge applicable in fiscal year 2011 (95 yen), which is reviewed under the actual cost method every fiscal year, is included in the revised charges for optical main subscriber lines under the shared access system.
  • *3Regarding the current application to revise interconnection charges, adjustments are made for each fiscal year by adding or subtracting the difference between the actual revenues and actual costs to or from the interconnection charge costs for the second succeeding fiscal year.

In addition, interconnection charges for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2012 for optical branch subscriber lines under the shared access system will be revised (to 310 yen from the current 350 yen).

2.Period of Implementation

After ministerial approval, the revised interconnection charges will be applied starting on April 1, 2011.
