AMMAN —AlGhad— Sources confirm that the government has been looking into options alternative to imposing fees for using calling apps on subscribers over the last two days, including suggestions proposed earlier to collect more income from the telecommunications sector for the treasury to support the 2017 Budget.

Alternately, the government is looking into the options to increase special taxes on voice calls, now at 24 per cent, as well as increasing sales taxes on internet services, from 8 to 16 per cent, in addition to imposing JOD1.00 on post-paid subscriptions.
