A subscriber submitted the following message earlier today, and we thought we’d throw it up for discussion:
Following a substantial reduction in the interconnect rates early this year, there was a raised hope of an inevitable gsm calls tariff’s reduction. However, events of the last 3-months has clearly shown that all expectations about tariff reduction were misplaced. What then is the purpose of interconnect rate reduction if subscribers cannot have call rate reduction? Why has NCC been silent on this issue? Subscribers are groaning under the prevailing high call rates. Subscribers must be protected against the exploitative tendencies of the GSM operators.
So, guys, what happened to the hopes of lower call tariffs?
