Long-distance market to be deregulated

12 Jun 2008

Ukraine’s National Communications Regulatory Commission has decided to cease regulating end-user tariffs for long-distance telephony. All long-distance voice service providers will now be free to set their own prices. State-owned former monopoly fixed line operator Ukrtelecom is likely to benefit from the decision as it will allow it more flexibility in its tariffs to help fight growing competition from alternative telcos, mobile services and IP telephony providers.
