Icelandic watchdog says Mila's universal service cost is not unfair burden

Monday 30 September 2019 | 11:52 CET | News
The Icelandic Post and Telecom Administration (PTA) said it has ruled that Mila's net cost of ISK 66.75 million for universal service provision would not be an unfair burden on the Siminn group. It said the decision was compared to a similar assessment the regulator's Irish counterpart, which found that net costs incurred by Eircom were not an unfair burden on the company.
