October 28, 2011

Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Brazil’s telecommunications regulator, known as Anatel, said it approved a plan to reduce fixed-line telephone call charges between 2012 and 2014.

According to the plan, which will occur in three stages, the cost of a telephone call from a fixed-line phone to a mobile will fall from 54 centavos ($0.32) currently to 42.5 centavos in 2014, Anatel said in an e-mailed statement yesterday.

Anatel will publish its decision to approve the measures within 80 days, according to the statement. Telephone companies will have 20 days from the publication date to comply with the new tariffs, Anatel said.
