On October 8 1999 the Telecommunications Authority announced a further reduction in PNETS charges for internet service providers (ISPs). At the same time, interconnection charges for mobile telephone users will also be reduced. The per minute usage charge to ISPs will be lowered from the current 3.3 cents per minute to 2.7 cents per minute, representing an 18% reduction. The charge for mobile telephone operators will be lowered from 6.4 cents per minute to 5.9 cents per minute. The monthly rental of the lines used by ISPs and mobile telephone operators will also be reduced from HK$82 per line to HK$79 per line.
