Montenegro Agency for TelecommunicationsThe Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services is an independent regulatory authority for the field of electronic communications and postal services and is functionally independent of all entities which use telecommunication networks, provide equipment or offer services.

The Agency started its work on 8 March 2001. The basic principles that the Agency has applied to sector regulation have been the following: provide a secure and predictable environment for business operations of the operators; create conditions for the implementation and development of new technologies in the whole territory of Montenegro, with the promotion of rational utilisation of limited resources (radio-frequencies and numbering/addresses); promote competition and prevent the distortion of market competition among operators; resolve disputes between operators; and constantly improve the protection of the interests of customers.
