State telecommunication operator PT Telkom will cut the retail tariff of all of its services by an average of 20% when a government-sanctioned reduced cost-based interconnection tariff takes effect on April 1, a spokesman said.
"Our telephone tariff will be reduced by an average of 20%. It will apply to all our services, including cellular phone (Telkomsel) and fixed wireless (Flexi)," Telkom's enterprises and wholesale services director Arief Yahya told Antara on Friday (29/2/08).
The government on February 4 announced a new cost-based interconnection tariff which implied a reduction of 20-40% in cellular phone tariffs and a cut of 5-20% in fixed-wireless tariffs.
Interconnection is the connection among telecommunication operators or termination from different operators.
