Tehran, Iran, Oct.7
Iran's estimated value added service (VAS) turnover has reached $476 million, said the head of public relations at the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology of Iran.
"The operators benefit from value added service because of extra income, while there are no profits for the ministry of Information and Communications Technology," said Seyed Jamal Hadian, Trend reports citing ISNA.
"Minister Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi has ordered the regulators to reform and review the processes of all services. Therefore, all value added services would be annulled and then resume based on individual demands," he added.
"The minister has announced the reform, so in the first phase the membership system and services will be reformed so the services will be provided fairly," he added.
"The value added service mechanism is public and private and used by organizations, but the abusive users should be dealt with," he said.
