Kazakhstan to switch to per-second calls billing by 2014

25 february 2013, 11:42
Kazakhstan will fully switch to per-second billing of calls by January 2014, Tengrinews.kz reports citing the website of Kazakhstan President's Central Communications Service. The last step will include lowering the billing increment for international calls from 10 to 1 second.

Lowering of the billing increment for international calls from 60 to 30 seconds was made in 2010. Then Kazakhstan Ministry of Communications and Information introduced the per-second billing in the cellular networks. In July 2012 the billing increment for phone calls around Kazakhstan were cut from 10 to 1 second and the billing increment for international calls were lowered from 30 to 10 seconds for all users of fixed telephone communication lines.

Many countries still have the per-minute billing for all the calls and in some countries the users have to pay a connection fee on every call and pay for incoming calls as well as for outgoing. For example, Russian cellular operators still have the right for per-minute billing and the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service has given up the idea of banning the system.
