Slovakia pressured by Commission to lower wholesale mobile rates

8 Sep 2009

The European Commission has sent a letter to the Slovakian telecoms regulator, TUSR, repeating a directive to bring the country’s mobile termination rates (MTRs) down to more competitive levels. The Commission called the country’s MTRs amongst the highest on the continent, and restated its position on the importance of using long-run incremental costing methodologies for calculating the efficient costs of termination, rather than the fully allocated costing approach proposed by TUSR.
