From July 2020, a repeated reduction in tariffs for roaming with  Artsakh is expected

ArmInfo.Tariffs for roaming with Artsakh from July 2020 will again be reduced. Minister of High-Tech Industry of Armenia Hakob Arshakyan announced this on  December 18 at a press conference.

The Minister recalled that earlier tariffs had already been revised.  So, tariffs for incoming and outgoing calls decreased by 11-14%.  "From July 1, the cost of incoming and outgoing calls will be  reviewed, we will inform about this later," the minister said,  without specifying how much the tariffs will be reduced.

Earlier, on August 8, head of the Committee for the Regulation of  Public Services Garegin Baghramyan said that work is underway to  further reduce roaming tariffs between Armenia and Artsakh. "The  tariffs are high, we will periodically reduce them. There is already  an agreement that from January 1, 2020, a gradual significant  reduction in tariffs will be carried out with a frequency of six  months: the first reduction on January 1, 2020, then from July 1,  2020 and another one from 1 January 2021, "Baghramyan said. He said  that at the moment a conversation has already been held with the  monopoly operator in Artsakh - Karabakh Telecom.

In addition, as Baghramyan pointed out, the price of pairing the  network will also decrease by 1 dram per year. "The goal is to  achieve the prices that are between operators in Armenia," Baghramyan  said, adding that a single pricing system will be created. According  to the head of PSRC, negotiations will continue in the near future to  establish a schedule and determine the period by which a single  pricing policy between operators should be introduced. We are talking  about the period after 2021, the head of the regulator pointed out.

RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said earlier that the authorities  of Armenia and Artsakh have agreed that from January 1, 2020, with a  periodicity of six months to January 1, 2021, roaming tariffs between  the two countries will be reduced. As a result, starting from January  1, 2020, tariffs for calls in Artsakh will decrease by 25%, during  the indicated period - by 30%, from Artsakh - by about 40%, and  subsequently - up to 45%. Internet access and data transfer services  will become cheaper somewhere by 50%, then - up to 65%, SMS - by 65%  and 75%, respectively. On August 1, the tariffs for outgoing (38  drams instead of 45 drams) and incoming (25 drams instead of 45  drams) calls provided by Beeline and Ucom companies decreased, and  for SMS - 40 drams instead of the current 60 drams.
