Iran Telecom Regulator to Ease Internet Fair Usage Policy

Following the introduction of a mandatory Internet Fair Usage Policy by Iran’s Communications Regulatory Authority enforcing price caps, the ombudsman plans to give some wiggle room to Internet service providers and let supply and demand regulate the tariffs. 
While CRA is wary of relenting its oversight over ISPs’ pricing mechanisms, the regulator has announced that by summer’s end, through introduction of an amendment to the Internet Fair Usage Policy, price caps are to be removed for most service providers in a move aimed at deregulating the market, reported ISNA.
CRA chief Hossein Fallah says by the end of summer, a directive will be introduced that will give some wiggle room to ISPs to set prices according to market demand, which will hopefully boost competition in the market and optimistically lead to better quality and lower costs of services.
According to Fallah, the draft of the amendment has been uploaded on CRA’s website and ISPs have days to submit suggestions before the proposal is ratified.
