Raja asks telcos to cut SMS charges
Advertisement
#1
Telecom Minister A Raja on Thursday asked mobile operators to cut SMS charges on the lines of one paisa per second tariff for voice calls.

"Increasing competition from new players and adoption of better technology have led to reduction in call charges significantly, and I feel the same can happen in case of SMS tariff also," Raja said at a function to celebrate 500 million telecom subscriber base.

Now the mobile call tariff have come down to as low as 1 one paisa per second and in some cases even half-a-paisa per second, the minister said, adding operators now must focus on a similar telecom revolution in the rural areas.
