(PRESS RELEASE) BUCHAREST, Romania, 1-Jul-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — We would like to inform the market and our investors that the National Authority for Management and Regulation of Communications in Romania (ANCOM) has authorized RCS & RDS S.A., the Company’s subsidiary in Romania (“RCS&RDS”) to continue to apply a surcharge for certain mobile telephony roaming services supplied to its customers traveling in the European Economic Area (EEA), therefore including the European Union.
By decision issued on 1 July 2019, for allowing RCS&RDS to continue to recoup the costs incurred for the supply of roaming services and to continue to apply the national tariffs in Romania, ANCOM has authorized RCS&RDS’ request to apply a surcharge, on top of the national tariffs, for certain roaming services supplied to its own customers traveling in the EEA, but without going above the maximal following values:
- 0.0187 Euro/minute (excluding VAT), for the calls made by its clients,
- 0.0085 Euro/minute (excluding VAT), for the calls received by its clients (this value might vary in accordance with the changes brought by the European legislation),
- 2.20 Euro/GB (0.00220 Euro/MB), excluding VAT.
RCS&RDS will apply the roaming surcharges starting from the first unit of consumption supplied to its own customers traveling in the EEA.
The renewed authorization issued by ANCOM will apply for 12 months starting 1 July 2019.
