Trio fined for MNP failures

9 Mar 2011

Bulgarian telecoms regulator the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) has announced that it will fine the country’s three mobile operators – MobilTel, Cosmo Bulgaria (GloBul) and Vivacom (formerly Bulgarian Telephone Company, BTC) – a total of BGL1.5 million (USD1.06 million) for breaking mobile number portability (MNP) rules. The cellcos have confirmed they will most probably appeal against the decision in the Supreme Administrative Court. In 2010 the trio were fined the same amount following over 40 customer complaints about number portability.
