CUTS worried about 30-ngwee day tariff

TRYNESS TEMBO, Lusaka
CONSUMER Unity and Trust Society (CUTS) says the 30-ngwee-a-day tariff on internet calls will have implications on the cost of doing business as other countries will benefit from more affordable means of communication.
On Monday, Cabinet approved the issuance of a statutory instrument (SI) to facilitate the introduction of a 30-ngwee-a-day tariff on internet calls.
But CUTS centre coordinator Chenai Mukumba said Government’s decision to increase the cost of internet phone calls will severely affect low-income consumers who have switched to this form of communication due to the high cost of regular phone calls.
Ms Mukumba said in a statement yesterday that communication is not a luxury service to consumers but a necessary component of the day-to-day social and economic activities of citizens http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
