Tuesday 12 May 2015
Roaming in the Eurasian Economic Union countries will be dropped by 2017, the Kazakh media reported, quoting the director of the Department of antimonopoly regulation of the Eurasian Economic Commission Alexander Kurilchik.
According to him, the Eurasian Economic Commission offers to prepare a draft decision on establishing price limits for roaming in the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union for the period of 2016-2017. By the end of this period, the roaming rates should be reset. The Eurasian Economic Commission noted that the work to abolish roaming in the European Union is being held.
Currently, rates for outgoing calls in the Eurasian Economic Union countries exceed the 3 to 5 times the maximum rate in the European Union.
