Indian mobile operators to drop rates

Indian mobile phone firms anticipate to further reduce call charges on Thursday, in order to prevent subscribers from shifting to cheaper limited mobility services.

The Business Standard newspaper reported that unnamed sources feel mobile operators could reduce the rates on national long distance calls, make mobile-to-mobile calls free, and develop a phase reduction in tariffs to match rates of competitors.

Reliance Infocomm, a telecommunication provider, switched to Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) wireless technology on December 27, realizing cheaper limited mobility services and a service priced at 0.40 rupees a minute for outgoing calls. (
