Argentinian operators to hike rates by up to 16%

Tuesday 4 October 2016 | 11:15 CET | News
Argentinian operators Personal and Movistar will shortly increase their tariffs for the third time in 12 months due to the country's rampant inflation of around 40 percent, reports local daily La Nacion. The hikes started last week when Personal announced a 15.4 percent rise in the average price of its postpay tariffs, with prepay rates set to increase by 16 percent for daily internet access from 21 October. Telefonica's Movistar unit will likewise apply an average price hike of around 10 percent to its postpay and prepay rates starting 14 November.
