Ratel rules on network access

9 Jun 2010

Serbian telecoms regulator Ratel has decided on the terms and price at which Telekom Srbija will lease its infrastructure to newly licensed Telenor. Telenor was unable to reach an agreement with the incumbent on the price for access to its network, after the Norwegian company was awarded the country’s second fixed line operator licence late last year. As a result, the regulator intervened to mediate an agreement. The Ratel decision sets the terms and prices for fixed interconnection services, call scheduling, access points and lines for interconnection, as well as access to the telecoms infrastructure. Ratel gave the operators 30 days to implement the decision and also ordered the companies to submit reports every three months.
