Mauritius has reportedly cut its international bandwidth tariffs from 36% to 22%, depending on the bandwidth used and the proposed destination, IDG News Service reports. The country’s telecoms regulator, the Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA), approved the move at the end of 2008 and Mauritius Telecom applied the new rates from 1 January 2009. It is understood the reductions bring down the monthly cost of a 2Mbps international private leased circuit (IPLC) from Mauritius to Paris from USD6,300 to USD4,900, significantly cheaper than the USD12,600 fee levied in 2003.
