“The most important thing during this initial stage is that the price of such phone calls, SMS and data transfer will be reduced for all users,” Ljajic underlined.

He adds that the price of an SMS will be reduced from 9 to 4 dinars, which is more than 50 per cent cheaper, and the price for the transmitted megabyte of data will be reduced from 30 to 4 dinars.

“It should be noted that this is the average price reduction and there will be some differences, but for now we are talking about the price that will be applicable to most users,” Ljajic said.

He reminded that the regional agreement, signed at the beginning of April in Belgrade, will take place in three phases – the first phase starts on July 1st this year, the second on January 1st, 2020, and the third on July 1st, 2020.
