Mobile phone company Cellcom wants its objections heard before any change is made in the regulation of state-run national phone company Bezeq.
Cellcom President Jacob Perry wrote to Communications Minister Reuven Rivlin following press reports that regulation of Bezeq's fees will be withdrawn altogether or limited as the company loses its monopoly in the domestic market.
Cellcom has spent two years preparing to compete in the domestic market based on the assumption of a distinction between wireline and wireless communications, Perry wrote.
Blurring this distinction is wrong per se and economically ill advised, Perry added, and will result in regulatory chaos.
Any final decision by Cellcom to compete in the domestic arena depends largely on the status of regulation, Perry concluded. He called on the ministry to consult with Cellcom ahead of making any changes.
