Fibernet announces 12%-30% cut in wholesale internet rates

28 Sep 2009

Armenian alternative telecoms services provider Fibernet Communications has cut its wholesale internet access rates by between 12% and 30%, PanARMENIAN.Net reports. The journal says the average cut applicable to internet service providers is 21%, although differentiated rates of between 12% and 30% will be applied depending on the amount of purchased traffic. Fibernet director Armen Khachatryan said his company’s new pricing policy is designed to promote internet connectivity and raising awareness of ICT in the country. ‘Through a flexible pricing policy, our company is contributing to this common purpose of providing full access to population. I think, by lowering prices for Armenian providers, Fibernet Communications thus contributes to lower prices for the end-user, and the further expansion of the consumer market. All this should lead to greater interest towards internet in Armenia and the further development of IT as a whole,’ Khachatryan said.

Established in 2006, Fibernet Communications was the second telecoms company in Armenia to receive a licence for international communications services. It owns a modern telecommunications network, offering a wide range of services, such as international dedicated lines, data backhaul, leased international channels, internet access, virtual point of presence and co-location.
