Chile's Comptroller-General has confirmed an 80 percent cut in wholesale fixed-mobile access charges proposed by telecom regulator Subtel, reports Diario Financiero. The Comptroller's decision comes after Telefonica appealed against the proposal to cut access rates from CLP 8.7 a minute to CLP 1.8 a minute. According to the report, Telefonica ended up proposing a fee of CLP 4.3 a minute but the watchdog said interconnection costs should be cut even further because Chile had some of the highest tariffs among OECD member countries.
