ANCOM opens consultation on lower mobile termination rates

13 Aug 2019

Romania’s National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) has opened a public consultation on its plan to reduce mobile termination rates (MTRs) with effect from 1 January 2020. The regulator has proposed a maximum tariff of EUR0.0076 (USD0.0085) per minute, down from the current rate of EUR0.0084, as a transitional measure until a single European rate is established before the end of 2020 under Directive (EU) 2018/1972.

The operators designated with significant market power – Lycamobile, Orange Romania, Vodafone Romania, RCS&RDS and Telekom Romania Mobile Communications – will have the obligation not to exceed the maximum regulated rate on their own networks. The rate will apply to national calls and calls from inside the European Economic Area (EEA), as well as calls initiated outside the EEA where there is no international agreement in place governing termination fees.

Interested parties are invited to submit comments and proposals by 11 September.
