Mobile termination rates to fall from 1 March 2012

7 Nov 2011

Danish telecoms regulator, the National IT and Telecom Agency (Telestyrelsen), has announced that mobile termination rates for the country’s four mobile network operators – TDC, Telia Denmark, Telenor Denmark and Hi3G Access Denmark (3) – will be lowered from 1 March 2012. Telestyrelsen has confirmed that the mobile termination rate for voice calls will drop from the current rate of DKK0.33 (USD0.061) per minute to DKK0.22 per minute, while the rate for text messaging will fall from DKK0.16 per SMS to DKK0.12. The regulator has also submitted a draft decision which seeks to impose the same mobile termination rates on mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Lycamobile as the country’s four network operators. Lycamobile launched mobile services over the network of TDC in July 2010.
