Lebanon's government is discussing a plan to impose a monthly charge of $6 on WhatsApp calls, as part of measures aimed at increasing revenues for the state treasury, local media reported Thursday.With revenues from the telecoms sector declining due to the use of internet applications to make calls, the ministers proposed imposing a fee of $0.20 a day for any call made using VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol).For the total number of VoIP users, estimated at about three million, the treasury would secure annual revenues of about $216 million.
