The wholesale prices of calls from fixed lines to mobiles in
The Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) took the decision following a string of meetings with representatives of the country's three mobile operators - Mtel, Globul and Vivatel. The changes are expected to make a difference to the customers' fixed-line telecom bills.
Phoning a mobile operator from a fixed line currently is charged BGN 0,38.1 for calls in peak hours and BGN 0,36.6 for off-peak calls. The prices go down to BGN 0,35 and BGN 0, 32.5 respectively as of the beginning of February.
The price fall is the first stage of a gradual transition to lower prices of calls from fixed to mobile lines or the so-called termination rates, levied by one operator on another, when a customer of one network calls a mobile phone on another network.
Lower mobile phone bills may not top the prospective investor wish-list, however, every little helps when living aborad, and the more the cost of living comes down, the more attractive the destination becomes.
