India's telecommunications minister Kapil Sibal assured that the Indian mobile operators have to change the range of tariffs and pass the profits, calculated on the basis of the provision of voice services, to the rates based on the data. The new pricing model will be primarily focused on Internet connection instead of a regular telephone conversations. "Today, the mobile industry profit is calculated based on the provision of voice services. It is time for the industry to move on and select the direction in which the main revenue is recorded on the basis of data services, not voice," - says Sibal speaking at the Indian summit CII dedicated to the development of broadband Internet.
According to him, the operators must change their basic principles of operation and move away from the traditional model of making tariffs, putting at the center of the traffic volume and speed of transmission.
"Cellular industry has to change his mind. Still telecoms think in terms of when the profit was calculated from voice calls. If you ask me, I hope that everyone will agree with me, that voice will become optional, and possibly free services, while the main company's revenue will get through the transfer of data, "- he said. "We will encourage operators to ensure that the voice eventually became free to subscribers of a company to communicate with each other without restriction."
At the same time, he noted that broadband - is fundamentally important for users and more and more services and users tied it on her. "The real issue is how many people to provide quality broadband Internet connection," - said the Minister.
