ANACOM to slash MTRs by 44% from 12 July

4 Jul 2018

Portugal’s National Communications Authority (Autoridade Nacional de Comunicacoes, ANACOM) has confirmed that it will lower the mobile termination rate (MTR) to EUR0.0042 (USD0.0049) per minute from 12 July 2018, representing a 44% reduction compared to the current price of EUR0.0075 per minute. The watchdog has stated that the move ‘alleviates distortions of competition that penalise the market, in particular smaller operators’.
