More good news for us... EU is pushing to make this a law to slash the cost of using mobile phones abroad, for text, data and voice calls.
The European Parliament is to vote next spring on whether roaming costs for text messages should be capped. The cost of sending a message is expected to eventually fall by 60% from an average of 23 pence to 9p.
Voice calls would fall from 36p to 27p a minute and customers would be able to set limits on data downloads.
A reluctant mobile phone industry first had limits on its roaming charges imposed by the EU in September 2007. However, those applied only to voice calls, not those for texting or browsing the internet while users were abroad.
What a GREAT news for travellers who travels to Europe oftens if this was made into law. Lets hope this will happen!
What are your thoughts of this?
