13 Aug 2013

Israel’s Ministry of Communications (MoC) is planning to cut fixed line interconnection fees from the current level of ILS0.0104 (USD0.002) per minute to ILS0.0099 per minute, Globes Online reports. While it is understood that the final rate will not be set until after communications minister Gilad Erdan concludes discussions with the country’s telecoms carriers, the decision to update the pricing structure comes after comments by carriers and a correction in the calculation of fixed termination charges.
