Termination Rates to Pakistan Rise by 100%!

In one of the largest rate increases in recent months, the termination rate to Pakistan has doubled from around 5 cents per minute to just above 10 cents per minute and the rate is expected to climb even more. The move is a result of the Pakistani government (PTA) making changes to help local Pakistani Telco companies be more competitive and profitable in the recently deregulated market as well as reduce “grey market” activity. The increased costs will also help Pakistani Telco’s pay for long term improvements and updating of the countries telecommunications backbone.

Many companies have yet to adjust their rates on their international calling cards and their are still deals to be had but this should not last long as more and more companies take action to increase the rates to keep up with costs.
