Antitrust to end cases vs major telcos on natl roaming in mid-Feb
ALMATY, Feb 2 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs Federal Antimonopoly Service plans to accomplish cases against the countryТs four major mobile operators Ц MTS, MegaFon, VimpelCom, and T2 RTK Holding Ц on national roaming in the middle of February, the watchdogТs Deputy Director Anatoly Golomolzin said late on Thursday.
УWeТre studying the cases on national roaming. We have not called it a day so far. The situation is clearer with two operators,Ф Golomolzin said without disclosing any names.
First hearings on the cases against the four operators on excessively high prices in national roaming were held in late September 2017 and then were delayed.
National roaming is active when an operator does not have a network in a region. Two other types of roaming are intra-network one, when an operator applies various tariffs to various regions within its network, and a special one for Crimea.
Earlier on Thursday, the antimonopoly service said it had duly received reports on fulfilment of its warrant on the abolition of intra-network roaming from the four operators and will check the documents during 10 working days.
