MegaFon has no plans to further cut prices in intra-net roaming

MOSCOW, Mar 15 (PRIME) -- MegaFon, one of RussiaТs biggest mobile operators, will not cut prices in intra-network roaming, applied when a carrier uses different tariffs in different regions, further despite the antitrust serviceТs pressure, the operatorТs Chief Operating Officer Anna Serebryanikova said on Thursday at a news conference.

УAs to intra-network roaming, itТs now fiction. It does not exist anymore as is. Of course, there are extra payments for long-distance calls in the mobile segment. WeТve halved the prices of call termination, but the Federal Antimonopoly Service found it insufficient. We cannot cut prices further,Ф Serebryanikova said.

УWeТve calculated our margins and costs in all possible ways and concluded that we cannot go lower than the offer weТve made to the Federal Antimonopoly Service.

The antitrust watchdog earlier warned the countryТs leading operators to eliminate a groundless difference in tariffs for subscribers outside the home region. Earlier in March, the authority opened cases against MegaFon and its archrival MTS after it checked their reports on the abolition of intra-network roaming.
