Plan for 200 VND a minute phone calls

In Uncategorized on November 28, 2008 at 5:01 pm

The Ministry of Information and Communications has recommended that landline phone tariffs for domestic users be unified.

If approved, in the new year, home users will pay just 200 VND per minute irrespective of where in the country they are calling. Now the tariffs range from 120 VND for local calls to 400-700 VND for long-distance calls.

Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Le Nam Thang said the move would help more people living outside cities buy phones.

The ministry has also proposed a 7,000 VND reduction in monthly subscription to 20,000 VND.

It would continue to regulate domestic phone tariffs until 2010, while charges for commercial users would be decided by the service providers, but within a 50 percent band of the charges of 200 VND a minute and 20,000 VND a month.

From 2011, suppliers will be free to decide charges for all subscribers, within a 50 percent band.

Mobile and international phone service providers recently cut tariffs.-
