Lebanon slashes tariffs for pre-paid cellular lines.
BEIRUT: Pre-paid cellular fares will fall by up to 40 percent at midnight as of September 1 of this year, Telecommunication Minister Charbel Nahhas said Monday. The new reduced rates will apply to voice calls and SMS messages. According to the statement, tariffs starting from 10:00 PM will fall by 20 percent a minute (or $0.296 from the current $0.37) and 20 percent for SMS (or $0.072 from the current $0.9). From 12 am and until 8 am, the rates for pre-paid cards will fall by 40 percent (or $0.222) and 40 percent for SMS ( or $0.054). Lebanon has previously slightly reduced the cellular charges. But despite these cuts, the mobile charges in Lebanon are still seen as one of the highest in the world. -- The Daily Star
