Call Rates to Pakistan from Abroad Increased Upto 800 Percent

by

Call Rates to Pakistan Increased

Call rates to Pakistan from all other countries has been increased from 300 to 800 percent due to implementation of ICH (International Clearing House) Charges. Increase in call rate, which is about 300 percent to 800 percent, varies due to country of caller and his network. Call rates has been increased since 01 October, 2012. This decision was made by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority and backed by Ministry of Information Technology. 

Online calling companies like Skype has also increased its call rate for Pakistan. Standard call rate from anywhere to Pakistan through Skype is now 14.5cents/min.

Why Call Rates Increased?

According to government officials, ICH has been adopted to eliminate gray or illegal call traffic to Pakistan. ICH (International Clearing House) will streamline all the incoming international calls through PTCL maintained Central Gateway and all LDI Operators will share revenue based on their market share. Monthly inbound call volume to Pakistan is about 1.5 billion minutes. According to Critics and Analysts, government will collect an additional 120 to 150 million US Dollars per month through increased call rates. 


Role of CCP

According to reports, CCP (Competition Commission of Pakistan) has challenged the PTA's decision of ICH. CCP has issued a policy note to PTA and Ministry of Information Technology. In this note, CCP said that implementation of ICH is illegal and not competitive in nature as it will create monopoly of PTCL while LDI operators will get revenue share based on their quota and their market share so LDI Operators will not struggle to increase their international sales of incoming calls. 

Impact on Overseas Pakistanis

This new policy of increased call rates will mainly effect overseas Pakistanis who are economic backbone of Pakistan. Overseas Pakistanis sent foreign exchange worth billions of dollars each year. Mostly these are working middle class who are living abroad to work for their family and ultimately their homeland, Pakistan. Increased call rates has dis-hearted them as now they can make only short duration calls to their family in Pakistan. 

What is the Solution? 

When traditional calls to land line and mobile phones has become costly, overseas Pakistanis are in search of  other alternates through which they can make cheap calls to Pakistan. There are many online companies / websites which offers almost free Internet to Internet Calls to anywhere in the world. Many educated overseas Pakistanis are already using this latest calling facility. This is a very good option as both parties not only make voice calls but also video calls. They only needs computer or smartphones with internet facility, a headphone, a PC Camera and an account of any service provider.

We will soon provide complete procedures of making free or cheap calls to Pakistan on PakistanHotline.com.
