The Houthi Movement on Wednesday decided to raise the price of internet hours after the formation of a new government by the Houthis and their ally, ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
According to this decision, the gold service with unlimited download was canceled and replaced with a data service with limited download.
Owners of internet shops were surprised as this decision was taken, pointing out that this decision will largely affect their work and may lead to close down their shops.
Many Yemeni youth resorted to open internet shops due to the high rate of unemployment. Thousands of Yemenis work in these internet shops, particularly in main cities.
Militias of the Houthis and ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh look for new revenues, so they decided to raise the price of internet.
