    Dhiraagu Introduces Major Tariff Reductions
    Dhiraagu is pleased to announce major reductions to line rentals, national and international call charges.

    Effective 15 August 2000, international telephone call rates to all countries will be reduced and the off-peak period increased from 8 to 12 hours a day. Off-peak calls will now start at 20-00hrs each evening and continue until 08-00hrs the next morning. These reductions vary by individual country, but will average 12% across all countries.

    Effective 1 September 2000, telephone line rentals on inhabited islands with residential phone service will be reduced from Rf 75/- to Rf 30/- per month. This means all residential telephone line rentals on inhabited islands across the Maldives will now be the same.

    Also effective 1 September 2000, major reductions will be made for national telephone call charges. All inter-atoll calls will now be in 3 simple bands of Rf 0.65, Rf 1.12 and Rf 1.70 per minute, based on distance. Many customers will see major rate reductions as a result.

    All details of the new tariffs will be communicated in full to the public over the next 2 weeks.

    Keith Wilson, General Manager of Dhiraagu said. "We have been working on these tariff changes for sometime and I am very pleased we have now reached agreement. All customers will benefits from these tariff reductions."
