Conatel opens public consultation on ILD tariff caps

3 Dec 2013

Honduran telecoms watchdog Comision Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (Conatel) has opened a public consultation on establishing capped tariffs for international long distance (ILD) calls and supplementary mobile services, including mobile originated short message services (MO-SMS). According to a press release, the regulator determined that it is appropriate to issue a general regulation to amend the capped tariffs for ILD calls for fixed telephony, mobile cellular and personal communications service (PCS) users, applicable from 1 January 2014.

Under the draft legislation, IDL calls will be amended as follows: calls to US will be capped at HNL2.00 (USD0.10) per minute, Canada – HNL2.00; Central America – HNL4.50; Belize and Panama – HNL6.50; Mexico – HNL6.50; Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Puerto Rico – HNL22.00; South America – HNL 22.00; Europe – HNL23.00; and rest of the world – HNL23.00. The regulator invites all interested parties to submit their comments and recommendations by 4 December 2013.
