Mauritius Telecom gets green light to cut wholesale ADSL rates

28 Nov 2006

National operator Mauritius Telecom has been given approval by the Information and Communication Technologies Authority to cut its wholesale ADSL tariffs by 26%, writes online news portal lexpress.mu. If the country’s ISPs pass on the full effect of the price reduction, customers will be able to receive a 128kbps connection (note: this is below TeleGeography’s minimum 256kbps in one direction definition of a broadband line) for MRO700 (USD2.68) per month, instead of MRO950. The new prices should be published later this week.
