Wednesday 18 January 2017 | 11:07 CET | News
Argentina's telecommunications regulator Enacom and the trade ministry have reached an agreement with the country's mobile operators to extend the National Prepay Plan until April. The operators accepted the continuation of the plan set up by former president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner to mitigate the effects of surging inflation. The programme establishes set prices that are up to 67 percent lower than average prepay plans for voice calls, mobile data and messaging and around 718,000 users have signed up since August 2014.
