Local telecom operators providing roaming services are compelled to lower the tariffs of roaming voice calls to EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein starting today, the national communications authority ANCOM announced. The move is in line with EU regulations for public mobile communication networks, and all telecom players present locally already announced they would enforce the price reductions.

The maximum level of roaming voice calls will be EUR 0.35 per minute for out-going calls and EUR 0.11 per minute for in-coming calls. These tariffs do not include VAT charges.

The current roaming tariffs are EUR 0.39 per minute for out-going calls and EUR 0.15 per minute for in-coming calls. This makes the new tariffs 10.3 percent and 26.7 percent lower. The tariff for sending SMSs using the roaming service remains unchanged, at EUR 0.11 (without VAT) the most, while receiving texts is free of charge, the same source announced.

“These upper tariffs are the limits that providers are compelled to follow in their standard roaming tariffs plans. At the same time, they can offer other type of roaming tariffs,” ANCOM explained.

The European Commission is currently revising regulations for roaming in international networks, and new norms are expected to follow soon.
