The team behind MediaPro Georgia – three people – sits in a small two-room office in Saburtalo. The building has seen better times, one of the office’s two rooms is shared with several other people. No sign on the door hints that a company which generated about GEL 6.5 million in revenues in 2011 is located here. 

MediaPro Georgia is a special company. It holds a monopoly status that has been granted by the Georgian National Communications Commission (GNCC) for 10 years. When a customer of a Georgian phone company – landline or mobile – wants to switch from one operator to another while keeping his or her old number, MediaPro Georgia comes into play. The company maintains a database that keeps track of phone numbers and providers they are associated with. When switching providers, consumers do not pay a fee, as is the practice in some EU member states. Rather, the bill is footed by Georgia’s four mobile phone and 27 landline operators.

The television channel TV9 launched its broadcast via cable and satellite in April 2012 as a voice of the opposition Georgian Dream coalition. The station is owned by Ekaterine Khvedelidze, the wife of now Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili (80%) and Kakha Kobiashvili, a close relative of Ivanishvili (20%). The channel was set up within only a few months, and attracted many reporters from other media outlets with high salaries. It has never been kept as a secret that Ivanishvili’s family was the channel’s sole source of financing.
