Tele2 given to end-May to comply with national roaming order

26 Apr 2018

Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has ordered mobile operator Tele2 to eliminate ‘unreasonable’ national roaming charges in its tariffs by 31 May. By that date the cellco must introduce ‘economically reasonable’ subscriber tariffs for its own customers who roam onto other operators’ networks within the Russian Federation, Interfax reported. In Q1 of this year Russia’s four major cellcos, MTS, MegaFon, Beeline and Tele2, corrected violations in national roaming charges under FAS orders – mainly relating to roaming in the Russian-occupied Crimea peninsula – but in the case of Tele2 the matter has dragged on further due to its network covering 65 Federation regions compared to 83 regions covered by the MTS, MegaFon and Beeline networks.
