Fusion Communications Corp. said Wednesday it will cut its international call rates by up to 75 percent beginning Sept. 1.

Under the new fee structure, calls to the United States and South Korea will be halved, with those to the U.S. costing 45 yen per three minutes and those to South Korea at 120 yen per three minutes, the telecom carrier said.

Calls to Canada will be cut by 75 percent to 45 yen per three minutes from the current 180 yen, it said.

These will be uniform rates throughout the day, it said.

Since April, Fusion has charged users a uniform rate of 20 yen per three minutes for calls made to anywhere in Japan.

With the latest rate cuts, the telecom carrier hopes to gain more subscribers to its Myline service, which enables automatic connection with users’ preferred carriers.

The free registration period for the Myline service will end at the end of October.
