The National Telecommunications Authority (NHH) has rejected interconnect fees proposed by all three of the country's mobile service providers and ordered them to lower their rates, daily Magyar Hírlap reported. The fees, which are charged when a client makes a call to a network operated by another service provider, must be changed with retroactive effect from May 25, NHH said. NHH said T-Mobile Rt and Pannon GSM Rt must each lower their interconnect fees 10.38% (to Ft 27.17 and 29.44 respectively), and Vodafone Rt must reduce its interconnect fee 16.48% (to Ft 32.61). The changes will reduce the difference between the highest and the lowest interconnect fee to 20%.
