In Russia, mobile communications and home Internet have risen in price

“Kommersant” told on the increase in the cost of tariffs for cellular communications and home Internet. In 2022, prices have already increased by 10-15%, and by the end of the year, the growth will be 15-18%.

Experts have found that almost all operators are raising prices, and cellular communications are becoming more expensive than home Internet. Operators are trying to increase revenue by changing archival tariffs, leaving subscribers the opportunity to switch to current tariff plans.

The Federal Antimonopoly Service allowed operators to raise prices, but the increase in tariffs should not exceed the average inflation rate (by the beginning of August – 15.3% year on year). If the price increase exceeds the values ‚Äč‚Äčindicated by the regulator, an audit will be carried out: the FAS will request an economic justification and may issue an order demanding the return of the previous tariffs.

Operators and providers justify the increase in tariffs by increasing their own expenses for the maintenance and construction of networks, by rising prices for electricity and contractors’ services. To slow down price increases, some operators are also cutting costs and introducing more expensive tariffs with more services.
