ISPs air griev­ance over hike in rates

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 13: The main In­ter­net ser­vice providers have pre­pared a let­ter of griev­ance to be sub­mit­ted to the Min­is­ter of Com­merce and In­dus­try and Min­is­ter of State for Ser­vices Khalid AlRoud­han, in protest against the de­ci­sion that was is­sued at the end of last year to in­crease the rental value, reports Al-Jarida daily quot­ing sources.

The sources told the news­pa­pers that the com­pa­nies have be­gun to col­lect sig­na­tures of their rep­re­sen­ta­tives and the doc­u­ment will be handed over to the min­is­ter in an at­tempt to dis­cour­age the min­istry from im­ple­ment­ing its de­ci­sion to in­crease rents on the of­fices to 400 per­cent.

Sources added that the min­istry has taken its ex­ec­u­tive pro­ce­dures to im­ple­ment the de­ci­sion start­ing this month, as the new prices were set in the fi­nan­cial sys­tem for the col­lec­tion of these amounts, which con­firms the need for In­ter­net com­pa­nies to ad­here to these prices start­ing this month.
