In a move expected to give the information technology industry an edge, Jordan Telecom has said it is considering plans to reduce the cost of local phone calls for Internet users within the coming three months, the Jordan Times reported Wednesday. 

Jordan Telecom Chairman Shabib Ammari was quoted by the daily as saying that "the company is discussing the matter with the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission to reduce the 10 fils per minute fee for online users," but he did not confirm the price decrease.  

The new data network, according to the daily, will improve, among others, the standards of Internet connectivity, availability and quality. It will provide ISPs and end-users with easier connections, faster data transfer capabilities, and higher speeds ranging from 64 Kb per second to 7 Mb per second --
