Antitrust to check reports on intra-net roaming abolition soon

MOSCOW, Feb 1 (PRIME) -- Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service has duly received reports on fulfilment of its warrant on the abolition of intra-network roaming from major local mobile operators MTS, VimpelCom, and MegaFon and will check the documents during 10 working days, the authority said on Thursday on its Web site.

“We’ll scrutinize the received information within 10 days. If the submitted reports fail to comply with the requirements of our warnings, the Federal Antimonopoly Service intends to open cases on violation of the antimonopoly legislation under the law on protection of competition,” the service’s Deputy Director Anatoly Golomolzin said, as quoted in the statement.

The watchdog prolonged the deadline to abolish intra-network roaming applied when the carriers use various tariffs for different regions within their networks, until the end of January for MTS, MegaFon, and VimpelCom and the end of May for T2 RTK Holding.

On Wednesday, the service’s Director Igor Artemyev said that some mobile operators are not fulfilling the government’s request to abolish intra-network roaming. No specific companies were named.
