Single charge for successive calls from February in Brazil

Friday 30 November 2012 | 18:06 CET | News
From 26 February 2013, when a decision of Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) enters into force, all successive connections between the same origin and destination numbers, made from a mobile phone, will be charged only once. The decision was published in the Official Gazette on November 29. Resolution 604 states that calls made with a maximum interval of two minutes from a mobile device to the same number are considered a single connection. Anatel's decision aims to avoid the user having financial losses due to constant dropping of the line. According to the legal text, the measure is effective 90 days after publication. The amendment covers only calls made from mobile phones, but the target numbers may be fixed or mobile.
