ANCOM cuts FTRs from 1 November

31 Jul 2020

Romania’s National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) has announced that fixed termination rates (FTRs) will be reduced by 30% to EUR0.00098 with effect from 1 November 2020. The new rate was determined following the update of several parameters in the pure Long-Run Incremental Cost (LRIC) cost calculation model (the method used for setting the current tariff) and of the cost of capital. The rate will apply to wireline operators designated by ANCOM as having significant market power, and cover national calls and those made to and from the European Economic Area (EEA), unless existing international agreements allow different charges to be imposed.
