Regulators demanding cheaper fixed calls.

The Agency for Electronic Communications said that because of the new way of calculating real costs, fixed telephony rates can be expected to drop.

"By applying the new technology based on real costs, the Agency gives operators predictability as regards wholesale prices over the next three years. That means that they can plan their investments in network infrastructure facilities," says Vaska Petrovik, head of the sector for market analysis at the Agency for Electronic Communications.

The Agency cut also wholesale prices for connecting one mobile operator to another with hope that this would drive down mobile telephony rates too. However, besides VIP, which announced lower rates, the other two operators T-Mobile and One said that their services were cheap and good as they were and that they would offer new packages and services.
