Another step towards the right direction from Omantel...according to this article in the Times of Oman, Omantel is revamping the tariff scale for local calls and lowering IDD rates...
You got fooled by their publicity. Omantel has actually increased their fixed line tarrifs and are lying in their press releases. The old rates were distance based, but for distances within 20km, calling another fixed line used to cost 25 baisas for 9 minutes. The new rates don't have distance limitations, but cost 15 baisas per minute. That means the per minute cost has gone up from 2.7 baisas to 15 baisas. That's a 550% increase.The only savings are for people who call long distances.
The packages include free minutes now though...however, it's still a far cry from the 25bz/9min for <20 km...thanks for the correction...
