Telecoms tariff to increase fivefold

Yesterday, Minister of Telecommunications Johnny Corm submitted his two suggestions to raise the tariff for communications and the Internet at a cabinet meeting to review the budget, and set the fees according to the platform rates.
We’ve been joined by Communications Minister Johnny Corm to discuss these two suggestions.

In a statement, the Labor Union of Workers expressed amazement that the prices of all items had not decreased given the dollar rate that had plummeted by more than 30 percent.
“Where is the state monitoring, with all of its institutions and agencies, including the presidency, government, and key ministries?” the Union wondered.

The Union demanded that all exclusive agencies be abolished by Parliament. Finally, it emphasized that the patience of employees, workers, and low-income people will not persist if those responsible do not act to alleviate the crisis.
