subscriptions in the world. Lately, the Ministry of
Telecommunications, which is currently led by Minister Gibran Bassil,
has launched a new decree effective March 1st, 2009, to decrease the
subscription by 10$ for postpaid lines, and the 1 minute call by 2
cents (0.02 $). As for the prepaid lines, they will extend the period
allowed to stay without recharging units by 2 months making it a total
of 3 months.
They are still not great, and don't include any new services (3G?),
but definitely better than what we have now.
I was hoping they would also come up with charging by the second
instead of the minute (for example, if you make a call of 1 minute and
10 seconds, you get charged for 2 minutes). Fingers crossed, maybe in
the next decade.
