Poland to get lower WLR rate

3 Oct 2018

Poland’s Office of Electronic Communications (Urzad Komunikacji Elektronicznej, UKE) is to reduce the cost of wholesale line rental (WLR). Incumbent telco Orange Polska will charge alternative operators PLN18.82 (USD2.92) for line rental, down from PLN20.05 previously, Telecompaper reports. Orange’s rivals had hoped for the WLR rate to fall to around PLN10, though the UKE has justified its decision by saying that demand for fixed lines is dropping.
