Comments of Vodafone Albania on allocation of usage rights for frequencies in 800 MHz band (790-862MHz)

April 18th, 2018

Vodafone Albania Sh.a., together with Vodafone Group, welcome any initiative of the Regulatory Authority on spectrum assignment since it serves the objective of new investments in innovative technologies and improves the quality of services provided to consumers. However, given the level of upfront investment needed (spectrum + infrastructure), coupled with the recent hostile and uncertain regulatory environment (where severe and disproportional measures are being introduced in the market by distorting competition, in contradiction with the European regulatory framework), Vodafone cannot possibly consider to participate in this spectrum auction.

Comments of Vodafone Albania on Regulation of Tariffs for the Wholesale Mobile Call Termination Market

April 4th, 2018

Vodafone Albania believes in the advantages of a competitive market towards achieving an efficient economy. Moreover, Vodafone has always been engaged and has requested that AKEP and the regulatory measures proposed by the latter must comply with the European Unioin regulatory framework and best practices, in order to fulfill its mission to guarantee free and effective competition as well as non-discrimination and equality between the providers of electronic communications networks and services. The regulation of mobile termination tariffs is a fundamental matter as it conditions the industry structure, the structure of prices and consequently the level of consumption in mobile markets in both short-run and long-run timeframes. Such regulation will have an important bearing on consumer outcomes but also, because mobile communications is an important facilitator of social participation and productivity, on wider economic performance at the natioal level.
