MPT refuses EVN’s E-Phone plan

8 Sep 2006

EVN (formerly VP) Telecom’s proposal to allow its E-Phone subscribers to have network coverage across all three of the country’s regions have been denied by the regulator, the Ministry of Post and Telematics (MPT). The MPT ruled the proposal oversteps the remit of fixed line services, which are numbered according to region, and it is unreasonable for E-Phone subscribers to be able to place calls if they move between the north, south and central regions. The MPT has told EVN that if it wants to be granted regional roaming rights, E-Phone must be developed as a mobile network and not a fixed wireless network.
