Cambodia nullifies telecoms law on minimum pricing Kushch Dmitry

Cambodian mobile telecoms operators have been ordered to submit to their cost data to the country’s telecoms regulator from this month, following a move to remove minimum pricing. The government nullified a law in November which set minimum prices on telephone calls - following protests from customers on social media. A statement said: ‘All telephone operators have to submit to the TRC  their cost base calculations every six months,starting from January 2014, for the regulator to have a basic principle to track honest competition.’
