CORPORATE BRIEFS

EuroTel cuts interconnect rates as of September 1

EuroTel Bratislava has become the first Slovak mobile phone operator to cut interconnect rates. EuroTel director Jozef Barta announced on September 1 that effective immediately, EuroTel customers would be permitted to include, in the free minutes they are eligible for under their EuroTel customer plans, any time spent calling into Globtel GSM's net or to a fixed line connection owned by Slovenksé Telekomunikácie (ST).

High interconnect rates between Globtel and EuroTel, Slovakia's competing mobile providers, have long been a source of annoyance for mobile users calling into another network. Barta said he hoped the unilateral move would end the need for customers to carry two mobile phones - one for calling Globtel numbers and the other for calling EuroTel.
