ArmenTel Board Discuss Introduction of Per Minute Billing System

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The issue of the per minute billing system set to begin September 1 has not yet been settled. At the meeting of the Parliamentary Ad Hoc Commission studying the government’s activities in the energy industry–Minister of Transport and Communication Andranik Manugian said that the issue will be settled at the next meeting of the Board of Directors of ArmenTel.

At the same time Manugian pointed out that Armenia’s executive and legislative branches object to both to the introduction of the per minute billing system and to the increase in the telephone rental fee in case the system is not introduced.

According to Commission Chairman Vazgen Manugian–by introducing the per minute billing system ArmenTel will violate a number of laws in Armenia–which will open the doors for Parliament to express its opinions and concerns to the company at the beginning of the autumn session.

Regardless of the introduction of the new system–the prices for communication–international telephone and Internet communication will be reduced by September 1.
