Ofcom's monthly update - April 2011

News /

Ofcom have carried on implementing changes that were raised during their consultation in relation to the mobile termination rates (MTRs).

In this update they highlight their guidance being given to smaller mobile communication providers in order to resolve any disputes over what are fair and reasonable charges.

'On 15 March 2011 Ofcom announced a reduction in MTRs – the wholesale charges that mobile operators make to other operators to connect calls to their networks - which came into effect on 1 April. During the consultation process, Ofcom recognised that smaller mobile communications providers would need to agree fair and reasonable MTRs with originating communications providers (the network from where the call was initiated).'
