BSNL to cut long distance call rates to Sri Lanka

14 Sep 2006

BSNL has decided to slash international call rates to Sri Lanka and Middle East, ahead of expected competition from Reliance which has opened a new undersea cable link, Falcon, between India and Middle East.

Call rates to Sri Lanka will come down to 7.20 rupees a minute from 12 rupees a minute and the pulse rate will increase to 10 seconds from six at present, it said in a statement.

''Tariffs have been reduced to offer customers a good choice and to be ahead of the competition,' said BSNL.

Reliance, with its $400 million Falcon cable that links Middle East nations, has tied-up with the firms there and was expected to offer cheaper call rates. Normally, all the firms match lowest tariffs on offer in the market.
