The Society for the Internet service providers is ready to lower down tariffs for the services rendered in case the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies (MCIT) will stick to such a policy, the Societys co-founder Ayaz Kerimov told journalists on 11 January, Trend reports.
According to him, charges on denial to cut down tariffs for Internet services in the country are not true, and despite the double increase of the leasing fees for relevant equipment installation at the Automatic Telephone Exchange (ATE), the Internet providers decreased prices for their services by 40%.
He also said further lowering of tariffs depends on the rates of the Baku city telephone network for services of the multi-channel telephone communication for providers by rendering services of the wideband Internet, which, according to the co-founder, have been grown 8 times since January 2006.
Kerimov noted, for the previous 2 years the outcoming channels rates to the global network have been reduced 20 times, or from $38,000/1mb to $2,400.
"Using the channel at the price of $38,000 by the provider would make the price of the Internet card of $800-900", he said.
