Abstract

I describe key concepts for measuring utility costs, with special emphasis on telecommunications. I explain the differences between economic and accounting measures for cost analysis and their usefulness. Economic concepts for understanding marginal costs, fixed costs, shared costs, and cross-subsidy are explained.
