Data Telecom Service "Internet" access in Antananarivo

From Jeff Cochrane, USAID, 22 April 1996

Greetings Afrik-ITers!

I received a news report today that a company called Data Telecom Service is now offering "Internet" access in Antananarivo. I assume this means SLIP/PPP access to a local server. Costs are as follows:

30,000 FMG setup
30,000 FMG monthly
2 telephone units per minute connect time

The latest exchange rate I have on the Madagascar is 3718 to the US dollar, which would make those prices look rather inexpensive.

Does anyone know what a telephone unit costs in Madagascar?
