Mobile network operators have suspended talks about possible tariff increases, following a decision made by the Georgian National Communications Commission. The Commission had accused the three largest mobile network companies of failing to fulfil some of their obligations, and was planning to create a level playing field on the market. All three operators responded by stating that the new regulations would lead to higher tariffs. However, the regulatory body has now decided that it will be causing to problems for the mobile network operators. Levan Giorgadze, the head lawyer representing Geocell, has stated that there will no longer have to be any fundamental changes on the market now. He adds that the Regulatory Commission has only asked the mobile phone operators to submit their income and spending data separately, to which all three companies in question have agreed.
Similar views have been expressed by spokespeople for Magticom and Mobitel, who state that following the Regulatory Commission’s decision, an increase in tariffs was no longer being planned.
