“Regarding the cases opened under article 1 of the law On protection against unfair competition. My position remained unchanged. I have a deep conviction that the consumer in order to be able to compare prices and make the decision more profitable tariff plan, you need to have a single payment period is a month. As well as the cost for voice telephony installs in minutes (even if is charged per second). Based on this and the position of the law, which set billing period – month,” said Procyshen.

“Based on the fact that the signs of disturbances in the establishment of a 4-week billing, in my opinion, there are, as well as taking into account the first pulses to return to monthly billing, I consider it appropriate to give all mobile operators are required to consider the recommendations (with a clearly defined period of time for performance) of the termination, which contain signs of violations. The final decision will be taken by the AMC at its meeting,” she said.
