Recently, Sri Lanka Telecom, known in short as SLT, has renewed its Tariff plans for new SLT Citylink CDMA prepaid & postpaid telephone connections.
On Friday 30 July 2010, Sri Lanka’s largest fixed line operator Sri Lanka Telecom announced changed call rates for its fixed line CDMA packages then the Supreme Court gave permission to the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (TRC) to proceed with its base price for mobile and fixed line calls on the same day.
In the past, Airtel had objected to the new mobile call rates of a minimum Rs. 1 to Rs. 2 per minute and filed a petition in the Supreme Court, saying the new charges were a disadvantage to the customer. Sri Lanka Telecom offers the country’s lowest on-net call charges at Rs 1 per minute through its SLT Citylink CDMA prepaid and postpaid connections. It has reset its tariff plans for new 'Citylink' fixed wireless telephone connections.
The outgoing calls within the SLT Network are charged at Rs 1 per minute for prepaid connections, and in the other networks, the call charge is Rs 2 per minute. These rates are valid 24 hours a day and include daily rental of only Rs 3.
The outgoing calls for the first five minutes within the SLT network are charged at 1.25 rupees a minute and from the sixth minute call rate of Rs 1 per minute charged for the postpaid connections and to other networks, the first five minutes for the outgoing calls will be billed at Rs 2.25 per minute and from the sixth minute call rate charges of Rs 2 per minute. These rates are valid 24 hours a day and include monthly rental of Rs 299.
There is no start-up calls fees will be charged for both prepaid and postpaid packages and customers are charged on per minute basis. These charges are all exclusive of government taxes and applicable only for new 'Citylink' fixed wireless telephone connections.
The SLT statement said "However, all existing SLT Citylink CDMA customers are able to avail themselves of the benefits of this new tariff plan by migrating to the new packages," "This was made following the recent direction made by Telecommunication Regulatory Commission requiring all operators to adhere to a stipulated minimum floor rate."
Recently, Telecommunication Regulatory Commission TRC introduced a floor rate for call charges following a fierce price war which caused heavy losses among telecom operators.
