Roaming rates likely to be slashed soon

Minister of IT and Communication Dayanidhi Maran's wait like yours may soon be over within the next two to three days.

"I am anxiously waiting for roaming rates to come down," said Maran.

The telecom regulator is likely to come with an order of slashing roaming rates, a long-standing demand of the consumers.

Once a subscriber steps out of the home network, making or receiving mobile calls is an expensive option.

Costly roaming

Presently on a post paid connection the rental for roaming is Rs 49 and a surcharge of 15 per cent per minute on an average for different tariff schemes.
