Telkom slashes long-distance tariffs

8 Apr 2008

A company official has revealed that Telkom has lowered its long-distance tariffs by up to 46%. The decrease follows the government’s move to reduce the cost-based interconnection fees which companies are allowed to charge one another by up to 55% from 1 April. ‘The cut applies to long-distance calls from fixed line telephones to both fixed line and cellular phones,’ said Eddy Kurnia, vice president for public and marketing communication at the dominant Indonesian telco. Kurnia added that the tariffs for local calls are unchanged.
