35.5  Maktel's dispute on fixed-to-mobile termination fees

        In 2005, MakTel changed the retail prices for the traffic from fixed to mobile network. According to the interconnection agreements with mobile operators the change in retail prices automatically decreased interconnection fees for termination in the mobile networks. In February 2006, one of the Macedonian mobile operators, Cosmofon, submitted to the Commission of Agency for Electronic Communications (Agency) a request for dispute resolution with reference to the termination prices. The Agency rejected the requests of Cosmofon as "ungrounded". This decision of the Agency was appealed by Cosmofon by filing a law suit at the Administrative Court of Macedonia. The potential loss from the claim is approximately HUF 370 million, but the management estimates it unlikely that this would result in any loss. The final decision will be made by the Administrative Court of Macedonia, the timing of which is uncertain.
