Telecom Namibia lowers international, local call tariffs

17 Dec 2013

Telecom Namibia has lowered tariffs for international calls by an average of 9%, and reduced local call costs by up to 15%, applicable from this month and throughout the 2013/14 financial year to the end of September. The incumbent telco stated that the move is part of the company’s efforts to stimulate traffic to key international destinations and facilitate economic growth and development. It also noted there have been reductions in international settlement rates over the past years ‘and it is necessary to pass these savings to consumers in order to stimulate demand for international calling services.’ The operator added that the adjustments are in line with an ongoing tariff rebalancing process initiated a few years ago to eliminate cross-subsidising of services.
