EC proposals would cut mobile 'roaming' fees in the EU

Help

New rules aimed at reducing the price gap between using a mobile phone at home and elsewhere in the EU have been proposed.

The European Commission wants to cut "roaming" fees - costs incurred when calls are made or received, text messages sent or data downloaded when travelling in Europe.

Mobile phone customers would also be able to separate their national and overseas contracts and shop around.
