Rate reduction postponed

20 Oct 2006

Romania’s telecoms regulator ANRC says it is postponing a planned reduction in mobile termination rates for the country’s two dominant cellcos, Vodafone and Orange. The second stage of a long-term plan to lower mobile termination rates was due to be implemented on 1 January 2007, but the regulator says that with local rates now among the lowest in Europe there is no need for a reduction at the present time. The ANRC is working to harmonise Romania’s telecoms markets with those in the European Union ahead of Romania’s accession to the EU at the start of next year.
