Submits cost evaluation review to the TRA.
Etisalat has submitted their cost evaluation review for the year 2009 to the TRA, as required by the Price Change Request policy, which demands any operator to submit chit of their product and service cost before they can implement any new price changes or plan special promotions.
“Now that Etisalat has submitted its cost evaluation model, as per the TRA’s requirements, Etisalat expects to be able to implement significant and wide-spread changes in its calling tariffs and bring greater choice to customers in the UAE,” a statement from the telco reads. “This is an important day for the country, and Etisalat looks forward to providing even greater value to its customers and higher levels of quality.
Yup, this could mean that Etisalat customers will be able to make cheaper calls with their mobile subscription, though however, considering the players behind the game we can’t help but be a little cynic and say that it won’t be without a catch. Let’s just hope that these price changes also reflect, at some point, on the super-expensive Al-Shamil internet service (seems unlikely with eLife service now available but a man can hope, can he not?).
