Thursday 26 October 2017 | 16:19 CET | News
The European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation into the proposal of the Slovak regulator RU to set the maximum price for call termination at Slovak mobile operators from January 2018.

In addition, the Commission is concerned that the regulator included an unprecedented mark-up for company size into the standard weighted average cost of capital formula.
