Mobile Operators of Azerbaijan and Poland Should Expand Co-operation: Ambassador
Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend S.Babayeva / More attention must be paid to the cooperation between mobile operators of Azerbaijan and Poland, said the Ambassador of Poland to Azerbaijan, Krzysztof Krajewski, in his interview with Rabite Dunyasi newspaper.
"High telephone tariffs for roaming within foreign countries presents several problems," the Ambassador said.
According to Krajewski, roaming prices were recently decreased in European countries. "I think that it is possible to resolve this issue through applying Europe's experience. I recommend further expanding relations between the mobile operators of Azerbaijan and Poland," the Ambassador stressed.
Since the end of June, the EU directive to twice halve roaming prices came into force in twenty-seven European countries.
The result is that European subscribers using the roaming service will not pay more than 49 eurocents for one minute of outgoing calls and 24 eurocents for incoming calls.
Initially, the members of the European Parliament's Industrial Committee suggested setting tariffs at 40 eurocents for outgoing calls and 15 eurocents for incoming calls. The governments of many EU countries, however, insisted on prices being 60 and 30 eurocents, but Great Britain and France decided to keep their active tariffs.
