CMT confirms implementation of lower MTRs

2 Jul 2013

Spanish telecoms regulator the Comision del Mercado de las Telecomunicacinoes (CMT) has confirmed that as of yesterday new mobile termination rates (MTRs) had become valid. As per a previously announced glide-path, the regulator noted that the fee has now reached its target level, with all of the country’s wireless operators now required to charge each other EUR0.0109 (USD0.0142) per minute for terminating calls on their respective networks. Highlighting the fact that the new rate represented a reduction of around 75% from the EUR0.04 per minute charged by Movistar Espana, Vodafone Spain and Orange Espana when the glide path began back in April 2012, the CMT claims that MTRs in Spain are now among the lowest in Europe.
