Kyrgyzstan's national competition watchdog has checked the activity of the three major mobile operators, reports Profit.kz. It said that Megacom, Beeline Kyrgyzstan and Nur Telecom, which dominate in the market, had violated the Law on Competition by charging inflated prices for calls to other networks.   

The regulator sent warning messages to the operators in December 2018. They have stopped the violations by signing inter-connection agreements at rates 14 percent lower than before, with effect from 01 January.
