FNA wants cheaper fixed-to-mobile calls

31 Mar 2006

German regulator the Federal Network Agency (FNA) has said it will give mobile companies one last chance to cut the cost of calls from fixed line phones to mobiles, before it imposes new regulations. The country’s cellcos cut the rates they charge for terminating calls on their networks in December last year, with T-Mobile reducing fees by around 30% to EUR0.11 a minute, and E-Plus and o2 cutting their rates to EUR0.124 a minute, but the regulator said that prices were still too high compared to those in the rest of Europe. FNA has launched a public consultation on the issue which will last four weeks.
