Etisalat, Du seek TRA approval for tariff reduction

5 Sep 2011

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has received applications from the UAE’s two telecoms operators Etisalat and Du to reduce their call and data tariffs. Emirates 24/7 cites a report by Arabic daily Al Khaleej as saying that a joint committee comprising TRA members and representatives from the two operators is currently discussing the issue. The proposals follow several recent surveys that indicated a demand for lower call rates, particularly for international calls.
