After logging into the e-government portal, consumers can compare the operators’ tariffs and special offers using the tariff comparison service. Inquiries to be made in the tariff comparison service are immediately transmitted to the operators, and the operators will respond to the inquiries immediately.
RANKING OF TARIFFS BY FEES
Consumers wishing to use the rate comparison service will be offered the opportunity to choose between the options of ‘mobile phone’, ‘address-based mobile internet’, ‘landline phone’, ‘landline internet’ and ‘TV’, depending on the type of service they want to benefit from. The TV service cannot be selected alone, but can be selected together with landline phone or landline internet. By using the filter options, it is possible to query tariffs and promotions. The tariffs or promotions displayed as a result of the query are sorted in ascending order according to the average monthly fee. In the case of choosing an address-based mobile internet, fixed internet or fixed telephone service, the home address is sent to the operator for evaluation in the offer, depending on the consumer’s demand. Inquiries will be sent to the address provided.
TWO SEPARATE PRICES ON ONE SCREEN
Citizens are also offered filter options on topics such as the name of the operator, the average monthly wage range, the payment method (postpaid/prepaid), changing number portability or internet provider and the commitment period. After making the necessary filters, it is possible to select any two tariff or promotional offers and compare the characteristics of the two selected offers, including the parameters in the details section, on a single screen.
