Internet users in Kuwait are set to benefit from major price cuts.

Salem Al-Othainah, Kuwait's minister of communications and acting minister of social affairs and labour, this week issued a decision that obliges internet providers to slash subscription fees for domestic connections by at least 40%, according to a report from Kuwait Times.

It is the second time that Al-Othainah has called for price cuts for internet services.

The report added that Al-Othainah's decision will prevent the bandwidth cap policy for Wi-Fi services.

The maximum subscription fee for domestic internet services, after the decision, were set as KD 48 for one MB/sec, KD 77 two MB/s, KD 104 for three MB/s, KD 130 for four MB/s, KD 148 for five MB/s, KD 156 for six MB/s, KD 183 for seven MB/s and KD 200 for eight MB/s, the report added.

The timeframe for the implementation of the decision was not specified.
