MOSCOW, 3 Jul — RIA Novosti. The state Duma Committee on information policy, information technologies and communications at Tuesday’s meeting recommended the lower chamber to adopt in the first reading the draft law on the elimination of national and on-net roaming.
Deputies from “Fair Russia”, headed by faction leader Sergei Mironov has made the appropriate initiative to the state Duma in June of last year.
According to the explanatory note to the document, a draft Federal law aimed at the abolition of the differential tariffs on communications services, depending on the location of subscribers in a particular subject.
