26 Jun 2020

Montenegro’s telecoms watchdog the Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services (EKIP) has ordered Crnogorski Telekom (CT) to reduce the price of calls from its fixed network to mobile networks within the country by 10% and calls to other fixed networks by 5% from 1 July 2020. Based on an analysis of its cost model, CT has been instructed to charge EUR0.0474 (USD0.0532) per minute for peak time calls to mobile networks and EUR0.0321 for off-peak calls, while calls to other fixed networks will be charged at EUR0.0365 per minute. By the same decision, EKIP also instructed CT to reduce its wholesale prices of monthly ADSL packages by 10%.

The regulator has also issued decisions ordering CT, Telenor and m:tel to reduce the wholesale price of call termination services on their own mobile networks by 11.8% and on their fixed networks by 15.5%. EKIP noted the decisions were made following market analysis, a determination of operators with significant market power, and approval of their cost models.
