Kyivstar and MTS end interconnection spat

25 Jun 2012

Ukraine’s number one and two mobile operators, Kyivstar and MTS Ukraine, have signed terms on network interconnection following a protracted period of disagreement, both cellcos have confirmed, avoiding a court case which had looked likely after each company accused the other of obstructing a settlement. During the past year, all Ukraine’s main operators have been determined as having significant market power (SMP) in call interconnection, and uniform wholesale mobile termination rates (MTRs) were set at UAH0.36 (USD0.044) per minute.
