LIME drops cross network tariffs by more than 50%

7 Jun 2013

LIME Jamaica, the smaller of the island nation’s two wireless providers by subscribers, has cut cross-network tariffs from JMD6.99 to JMD2.99 (USD0.07 to USD0.03), the same price it charges for on-network calls. The price cut follows the announcement by telecoms watchdog the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) that mobile termination rates (MTRs) would be lowered from an interim level of JMD5 to JMD1.1 from 1 July 2013. The Jamaica Gleaner quotes LIME Jamaica CEO Garfield Sinclair as saying: ‘Even before the termination rates take effect, we will make the cut and will take the difference because we want to give customers value right away.’ Sinclair added that international calls to the US, Canada and the UK will also be charged at the lower rate.
