Industry insiders say mobile operators will soon be forced to raise prices further because network maintenance costs have increased significantly in recent months

Major mobile operators MTN-Irancell and Mobile Telecommunications Company of Iran (MCI) have revised their pricing procedures making Internet services a bit costlier.
Operators usually offered special packages which enabled users to access Internet at relatively low rates. Now they have deleted the affordable packages in a manner that compels users to purchase more expensive services, Fararu reported.
One of the moves that triggered widespread criticism among Internet users was the MCI’s decision to omit all the packages with bandwidth caps of under 5 gigabytes per month with free nightly access.
