France Telecom (FT) yesterday announced plans to reduce dramatically the cost of making fixed line voice calls in the country, charging all calls made at the same rate. FT, which owns and operates the Orange brand, is cutting the price to connect a call by 25%, while the price per minute (peak rate) will be cut by more than 55% and the price for off-peak calls will come down by more than 65% in mainland France. In addition, calls made to mainland France from overseas French territories with also fall by 20%, it said. The operator expects the measures to have an adverse impact on its annual revenue of around EUR30 million.
