The Commerce Commission yesterday announced ‘significant’ reductions in the cost of making fixed and mobile telephone calls in Fiji, as well as cutting internet charges. The agency has announced a 20% reduction in international call charges on Telecom Fjii’s services, a 10% cut in domestic long-distance calls, and a similar 10% reduction for making a call from a fixed line to a cellphone. Mobile retail call rates and international mobile rates have also been cut by 10%, while a 20% reduction has been introduced on retail internet dial up services. Fiji International Telecommunications’ (FINTEL’s) International Private Leased Circuit (IPLC) charges via the Southern Cross Cable have been slashed by 20%, it said. The new charges will all come into effect from 1 October for eight months and will be reviewed again at that point.
