MLR models have been validated using new DMA for the three clusters. The chosen DMA are from the same network areas, however corresponding to different years from those used to obtain the models. A relative error given by the absolute difference between the real and the estimated value divided by the real value was calculated. A DMA from Cluster 1 has been used to validate the model for December 2013. In Clusters 2 and 3, two DMA of each cluster were selected to validate the respective models for different months and years. Table 5 presents the relative errors, showing that the models have a good prediction performance with a relative error below 8%.
