Ekaterinburg — November 21, 2006 — Uralsvyazinform (RTS: URSI/URSIP, ADR: UVYZY/ UVYZYP), the leading carrier of fixed-line and mobile services in the Urals region, Russia reports the changes of local tariffs to take effect beginning with February 1, 2007.
Since February 1, 2007 Uralsvyazinform will charge 2.6 million of its fixed-line subscribers (72% of subscriber base) using three new tariff plans. Subscribers are expected to sign supplementary agreements that will enable them to choose between the three options until February 28, 2007. In case a subscriber does not sign the supplementary agreement in due terms, the default option will apply, which means a fixed monthly fee for unlimited local calls (unlimited tariff).
On November 14, 2006 Federal Tariff Service determined the maximum tariffs for the provision of local telephone services by Uralsvyazinform. Following this decision the company is introducing three tariff plans beginning with February 1, 2007; at the same time Uralsvyazinform will reduce significantly the rates for ‘unlimited tariff’.
Federal Tariff Service also decided to reduce installation charges (installation of telephone lines) by 25% on average beginning with February 1, 2007.
In compliance with Government Decree #637 dated 24.10.2005 ‘On State Regulation of Tariffs for Public Telecommunications Services’, since February 1, 2007 monthly fees for local services will be comprised of two components, including:
1. Fixed charges (line rentals) which are irrespective of traffic volumes in each of the tariff plans; these charges are supposed to compensate for operators’ maintenance costs;
2. Variable charges (local calls) that depend on the length of outbound local calls. Variable charges are based on three tariff plans:
fixed monthly fee (unlimited tariff) involves a fixed monthly charge for unlimited local calls;
time-billed charges where a subscriber is charged for actual telephone calls on a per-minute basis;
combined charges where a fixed monthly charge includes a pre-paid number of minutes, and ex-limit minutes are charged on a per-minute basis.
All incoming calls remain free of charge. Emergency numbers like 01, 02, 03, 04 and 112 are not charged, too.
According to the regulations, subscribers are offered a choice between the above three tariff plans provided an operator is technically capable of billing local calls on a per-minute basis.
Uralsvyazinform’s planned per-minute billing capability as of February 1, 2007 is 2.6 million subscribers (72% of subscriber base);
In case per-minute billing is unavailable, residents (about 28% of subscriber base) are charged on a fixed monthly fee basis; however respective rates are increased by 12.8% on average.
