Mobile services in Montenegro the most expensive in Southeast Europe - report.

By bne IntelliNews March 25, 2011
Montenegrin mobile telecommunication services are the most expensive in Southeast Europe, according to consultancy Cullen International, Vijesti daily reported. While three years ago the mobile telecommunications prices in the country were 15 to 35% lower as compared to the EU average rates, they have been growing steadily during the period 2008-2010 and in 2010 they already approached the EU average, reaching EUR 19.25. The process was accompanied by simultaneous decrease in the price of mobile services in the EU. The country with the lowest price of mobile phone services in the region is Serbia. Zoran Sekulic, director of the Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services however rejected the information and said for the daily that prices in Montenegro were lower both compared with the EU average and with prices in neighbouring countries. Cullen International is a consultancy firm providing a range of regulatory monitoring services on telecommunications, media and electronic commerce in Europe.
