PTS issues injunction to Tele2 for MTR compliance

7 Jul 2014

Sweden’s National Post and Telecom Agency (PTS) issued an injunction on 4 July 2014 to Tele2 Sweden to force it to reduce its mobile termination rates (MTR) for voice calls to an average of no more than SEK0.0815 (USD0.0121) per minute by 7 July 2014 (today), in line with a recent adjustment the regulator made to all operators’ MTR guideline rates. The PTS’ decision on MTRs (effective 1 July) was based on cost-oriented pricing under a new calculation method which the watchdog said was more accurate than previous MTRs. The injunction issued to Tele2 is effective immediately, the PTS’ release stated.
