Malta: Telecoms Regulator Steps In To Lower Phone Tariffs

The Telecoms Regulator has stepped in to fix tariffs for mobile telephony after the three players in the filed could not come to an agreement over revised tariffs as a result of the liberalisation process.

Reports say Maltacom, Vodafone and the new mobile operator go mobile could not agree on new tariffs for fixed line to mobile calls.

The Regulator stepped in with the powers given to him by law and issued an ultimatum, effectively coming up with the new tariffs himself. The new tariffs should be much lower that current ones.

Go mobile, a Maltacom subsidiary launching its services in a few days’ time, is the second mobile operator in Malta and a result of the liberalisation process in telecommunications.

Industry analysts blame the high telecommunications costs in Malta on the monopolies enjoyed until now in several sectors, which should be completely dismantled by January 2003 in line with European Union demands.
