Mobile termination in non CPP countries

As I only discovered two days ago, Ofcom is busy with a consultation on the future of mobile termination charges.http://www.ofcom.org.uk/consult/condocs/mobilecallterm/

On the site you can find a report by Analysys Mason that describes the situation with regards to mobile termination tariffs in Canada, HongKong, Singapore and the USA. http://www.ofcom.org.uk/consult/condocs/mobilecallterm/annex8_1.pdf
One of the interesting conclusions is, that for elements like penetration it doesn't really seem to matter which tariff scheme is used, but it does affect the usage of mobile telephony.

Also have a look at Sri Lanka, the only country to have decided to go to CPP, but decided not to after a wave of protest in the country on the issue. http://www.trc.gov.lk/images/pdf/cppeng.pdf their approved retail tariffs are interesting to look at too. http://www.trc.gov.lk/press-room/approved-tariffs/91-sri-lanka-telecom-plc.html
