Or vice versa. Thus NP only applies within 0780. That's clear. > The call routing on the PSTN side is NOT AFFECTED by the selection > of the KDB.

[Thanks also to Alexander, who also clarified on that very point] After having slept over it (and some mind massages via private email exchange), I guess I need to rephrase the question appropriately: - What will be 780 termination costs like? - Is that being set by RTR, the Austrian regulator? - From what I understand what you (and Alexander) said - "If there are multiple gateways available on the SS7 network, [...]" - each TSP/CSP can pick any other gateway (true m:n relation), so eventually there likely will be a market price for gatewaying. - In the meantime, there might be only one or two TSPs/CSPs providing such gateways. Will they be regulated pricewise for the time being? Best, -C.
