Telenor Increases 50% Balance Inquiry Charges

Telenor Pakistan has decided to increase balance inquiry charges by 50 percent from all its prepaid customers.

Before this the charges were 10 paisa per text without taxes and 12 paisa with tax but new rates will be 15 paisa without taxes and 18 paisa with taxes. This time Telenor Pakistan is increasing this amount for a better service but who knows..

It maybe recalled that Telenor was the first in industry to charge balance inquiries back in July 2009, followed by Ufone, Mobilink and Zong.

Also to mention here that balance inquiry charges were approved by PTA, but it had asked operators to give 30 days prior notice to customers before increasing any charges.
