With the weakening of Belarusian Ruble the local mobile operators plan to raise their call tariffs. MTS Belarus, one of the leading mobile operator, has already raised its call and SMS tariffs by between 15 and 30 rubles and other operators could now follow the league. The rise in tariffs is driven by a sharp depreciation of the ruble earlier this month; MTS Belarus has to pay for a significant proportion of its new equipment and for many services in foreign currency – and is struggling to do so as the currency fluctuates.
