Azercell cuts interconnection with Nar Mobile

22 Jul 2009

Azeri online news source APA writes that the country’s largest cellco by subscribers, Azercell Telecom, has suspended interconnection with rival mobile operator Azerfon from today (22 July), due to reported unpaid termination fees. Azercell Telecom claims that Azerfon, which provides wireless services under the Nar Mobile banner, owes AZN11 million (USD13.7 million) as a result of systematic breaches of monthly payment terms from July 2008 of the Interconnection Agreement in place between the two parties. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Azercell was Azerbaijan’s largest cellco by subscribers at 31 March 2009, reporting 3.58 million customers, while Azerfon stood in third place behind Bakcell, with a mobile subscriber base of 1.09 million at the same date.
