TRC to introduce common floor rates for call charges

mobile pornSri Lanka’s telecommunications regulator will introduce common floor rates for call charges effective February 1st to ensure small operators remain competitive, Reuters quoted an official as saying.

Charges on the same network will be raised by a maximum 50 percent, and charges between networks will be reduced by as much as 28 percent, the official said.

“Operators requested to review the floor rate, especially the small operators having a lower market share. When this type of tariff is there, they can compete with big operators,” Indrajith Handapangoda, acting director, competition, at the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) told Reuters.

Sri Lanka has five mobile telephone network operators and three fixed-line operators. (Colombo Gazette)
