Purchase costs and costs of subcontracted work was up by €9 million compared with 2014, at €400 million. This increase is mainly the effect of increased costs of transport capacity and restrictions amounting to €17 million due to higher charges and an increase in volumes. The increase was mitigated to some extent by lower costs of network losses, which were down by €10 million, mainly owing to lower tariffs and positive effects from settlement of outstanding accounts and prior-year set-off.
