It's for a good cause, it's for education!

Price Floor on incoming call rates to Haiti!

A price floor is a government-imposed limit on how low a price can be charged for a product or service.

The minimum tariff for calls to Haiti (The price floor) is 23 cents per minute that means the phone companies cannot legally offer you a better rate even if they wanted to...

From that minimum rate, 5 cents will be taken out and deposited to the Haiti National Fund for Education.

The danger of Price flooring...

With the minimum price set by the government, that limits price wars... You see??? When companies compete for your money, you win...

Question...

Now that the price of a minute of talk-time to Haiti has gone UP, are you planning to spend more to talk more OR... will be you keep your conversations short and sweet?

Will you spend MORE money to call Haiti or will you talk LESS?

any people with good mind that think about the 5 cent per minutes will object to it. acctually I use the direct contact from my cell phone where I get charge 70 cents a minutes add 5 cent every minutes is not a game therefore I take myself out of the game except if their is a emergency.

We are the target for the government because we care very much for our family.

when we send money we remimber uncle sam voizin gisele.

I think people will still call Haiti regardless of the 5 cents increase, specially if it is for education.

A five cent extra would not hurt the
