Ofcom confirms mobile termination rates for next four years

What does this mean to SureVoIP customers? It should hopefully mean that the mobile operators act fast and reduce their pricing for wholesale customers, i.e. customers like us which means the prices you pay to call mobiles will reduce.

 

 

Ofcom today announced a reduction in mobile termination rates – the wholesale charges that mobile operators make to other operators to connect calls to their networks – for the next four years.

From 1 April, Ofcom will place a cap on the rates charged by all four national mobile network operators – 3UK, O2, Everything Everywhere and Vodafone. This will lead to around an 80% reduction in termination rates over the next four years.

The new rates will apply from 1 April 2011 and end on 31 March 2015.

A press release, including a table with the mobile termination rate caps, can be found here:

We’ll keep you updated when our call charges to mobiles get reduced sometime in May 2011 once things have settled.

Thanks.
