New telecoms law seen necessary

A new telecommunications bill is needed to increase the pace of liberalisation in the former state monopoly, according to the head of the post and telecommunications section of the Transport Ministry, Vliliam Podhorský.

With the entry of new players into the market, prices are expected to fall and quality improve, he said.

Changes must be in place by June or July so that negotiations between the dominant operator and alternative operators can be concluded quickly, Podhorský added.
