Romania's Finance Ministry wants to increase the telecom and postal market's combined monitoring fee to 3 percent of annual turnover through a draft emergency ordinance, writes local publication Hotnews.ro. The fee would raise around EUR 100 million per year. It remains to be seen whether this 3 percent tax will be applied to companies and to what extent it will affect the prices of telephony, internet and TV services. The same draft emergency ordinance provides for the increase of fines imposed on telecom operators.
