D13.2.5 Estimated demand for the registry services in the new TLD.

The .geo model has four key variables that will determine the demand for the registry services; namely, the number of cells licensed, the number of GeoRegistries, the number of GeoRegistrars, and finally, the number of geodata files. Of all of the estimates, the number of geodata files is the most speculative.

The revenue model uses the following assumptions:

 

License or Fee

Definition of License or Fee

Amount in (U.S.$)

Payer (pays License or Fee)

Payee (receives License or Fee)
