  • These rates are unaffected by, and do not affect, any tariff notified, published or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.

We regret having to adjust this fee, and recognize the challenge it brings on you, but hope for your understanding. We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing working with you in the future.
