Anatel promotes cheaper fixed-to-mobile calls

26 Feb 2014

Brazil’s telecoms regulator Anatel has announced that it will be reducing interconnect fees for fixed-to-mobile calls from next month, resulting in an average 13% drop in the cost of calls for end users. The average price of local calls will fall from BRL0.45 (USD0.19) per minute to BRL0.39, while the cost of intra-region long-distance calls will decrease to BRL0.80 from BRL0.93 and national calls will see average tariffs drop from BRL1.05 a minute to BRL0.92. The watchdog says it expects the move to save consumers up to BRL2.1 billion a year.
