Kuwaiti internet-providers are set to lower their charges for the service by 15-25 percent, Ministry of Communications Undersecretary Abdulmohsin Al-Mazidi said on Friday.
After a meeting between the ministry and internet providers in the country, Al-Mazidi said that agreement had been reached between the parties, whereby a recently company-proposed policy called ‘fare usage’, will not see the light.
The policy, said to be proposed by companies, called for a download limit for users that if exceeded, would automatically release lower speed and bandwidth. The agreement will be effective as of one week of its signature, which occurred during the meeting, added the ministry official. The agreement applies to each of the four internet companies in Kuwait; FASTtelco, Qualitynet, Gulfnet Communications and KEMS.
