Telecommunications group Cell C on Thursday released its latest international call price structure, grouping countries into five zones.

While ensuring its 99c a minute standard call rate to 50 countries remained in place in Zone 1, the company would, from September 1, charge R1.99 a minute for calls to the 53 countries grouped in Zone 2, R2.99 a minute to the 66 countries in Zone 3, R3.99 a minute to the 22 countries in Zone 4 and R8.99 a minute for calls to the 35 countries grouped under Zone 5.

All calls were charged on a per second basis, and were applicable to fixed line and mobile numbers in the respective countries.

“We have spent a great deal of time negotiating better termination rates with our international partners. The termination rates, or rates charged by other operators to carry calls on their networks, remain the highest input cost both locally and abroad, when determining call rates,” CEO Alan Knott-Craig said in a statement.

Zone 1 included Angola, Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, the UK and the US, among others.

Zone 2 comprised, besides others, Argentina, Botswana, Israel, Japan, Mozambique, Namibia, Saudi Arabia, Swaziland, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates, while Zone 3 grouped Cameroon, Denmark, Ethiopia, Ghana, Lebanon, Lesotho, Mexico, Switzerland and Qatar.

Some of the countries included in Zone 4 are Albania, Bulgaria, Chile, Liberia, Sudan and Zimbabwe and Zone 5 included Cuba, Djibouti, Gambia, Sierra Leone, Somalia and Tunisia.
