Regulator abolishes DLD rates for intra-provincial calls

29 Jun 2006

The Dominican Republic’s telecoms regulator Indotel has launched a comprehensive overhaul of telephony tariffs, abolishing the domestic long-distance (DLD) categorisation of rates within a single province, according to BNAmericas quoting Indotel. Previously, DLD rates were applicable to all calls between locations more than 15km apart. The new rates have been introduced in Santiago Rodríguez, El Seibo, San Pedro de Macorís and Azua, with nine more provinces due by year-end, and a further eleven to follow in 2007.
