The high taxation imposed on mobile phone users is resulting in a loss of revenues for the state and weighing on the sector’s ability to contribute to job growth and the broader economy, according to survey results presented yesterday. In a study commissioned by the Association of Greek Mobile Operators, Greece’s high tax levels, the highest in Europe, have resulted in the sector slashing some 17,000 jobs and contributing 70 million euros less in taxes and social security contributions in 2010 than in 2009.
