Azercell, Azerfon launch talks over interconnection dispute

27 Jul 2009

Azeri mobile operators Azercell Telecom and Azerfon have entered into negotiations to settle a dispute over unpaid interconnection charges, reports local news source Today.Az. Last week Azercell suspended interconnection with rival Azerfon claiming that its rival, 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 between the two parties. For the sake of its 3.6 million mobile subscribers, Azercell has decided to allow interconnection with its rival’s network while talks are being held.
