Via Mexico Daily News:
It will cost more to gas up today, but less to make some phone calls.
Effective today, there is no such thing as a long-distance charge for telephone calls within Mexico, from either fixed-line or cellular phones. Elimination of the charge came with federal telecommunications reforms.
Mexico’s dominant player in the telephone business took the new rules a step further this week by eliminating international long-distance charges as well. Carlos Slim’s Telmex made changes to its telephone and internet packages by dropping tariffs on worldwide long-distance calling.
Gas and diesel fuel went up today by 3%, based on the projected inflation rate. It will be the only increase this year.
Actually, it won’t be the only fuel increase this year. EPN celebrated the New Year by breaking yet another of his promises.
