Roaming Charges Cut in EU

euflag.jpgCalls between EU countries may just get a little cheaper this week. Under new EU rules, telecom companies have until the end of July (as in today) to offer customers a new pricing structure that means cheaper “roaming” fees. And users have two months to say whether they want to move to the new plans or stick with their existing contracts.

The European Commission calculated that mobile phone carries made about 8.5 billion euros profit a year from roaming charges! Makes you want to always stay in network doesn’t it!
