Service will be cut as of August 27 if bills are not paid, it added. The financial ceiling according to which the computer will include a phone line in the ‘severance list’ is KD 50 (about $165) for home lines and KD 100 (about $330) for commercial ones, the ministry noted.

Subscribes can pay bills via the ministry’s website or the official one of the State of Kuwait Government, the Kuwait Government on Line.” They can also phone 123 to ask about their bills. —KUNA
