Colombia aims to slash Internet and computer prices

Thursday, May 3, 2012

The Colombian government has announced plans to lower the price of Internet and computers by 50 percent each year.

It also wants to make Colombia a cheaper place for telemarketing firms to operate, generating more jobs in an emerging market.

Telemarketing jobs, which people often do from home, are a good source of employment for low-income people. In a new law announced Monday, President Juan Manuel Santos gave all people in the industry the same rights to social security and public health and security standards, even if they work from home.
