The Montenegrin telecoms regulator EKIP made reforms to pricing by demanding operators cut prices, in a move to spur the country’s telecoms industry.
Crnogorski Telekom was ordered to cut prices of wholesale and retail services from August 1, while One, MTEL and Telemach Montenegro have to cut rates for national call termination, reported CommsUpdate.
Specifically, for retail pricing on its fixed network, Crnogorski Telekom has to reduce the cost of long-distance calls and connections made to other fixed networks in Montenegro by 10%, and calls to mobile networks by 15%, and international calls to fixed networks to other countries.
For its wholesale prices, the operator must reduce bit stream access prices across a range of packages ranging from 10% to 20%.
Crnogorski Telekom, One, MTEL and Telemach were also ordered to lower prices of national call termination services to fixed networks by 20% and on mobile networks by 16.13% from next month.
