PTA to reduce wholesale termination tariffs from 1 January

27 Sep 2017

Iceland’s Post and Telecom Administration (PTA) has sent a draft decision on wholesale tariffs for mobile and fixed call termination for approval to the EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA). Under the decision, mobile termination rates (MTRs) in the country will drop to ISK0.97 (USD0.009) per minute excluding VAT, while fixed termination rates (FTRs) will be capped at ISK0.11 per minute. The draft decision is set to come in effect from 1 January 2018.

TeleGeography notes that mobile operators currently charge ISK1.23 for mobile voice termination over their networks, while fixed providers can charge ISK0.14 (in effect until 31 December 2017). Call origination in Siminn’s fixed network, meanwhile, is capped at ISK0.50.
