EU unveils plan to end roaming charges for mobile phones

EU unveils plan to end roaming charges for mobile phones | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
The proposed law includes both “carrot-and-stick” elements to encourage mobile phone operators to remove roaming charges for customers who use mobile phones while traveling in the E.U.
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

Roaming charges especially in regards to data have always been prohibitively expensive. The EU (via Commissioner Neelie Kroes) has already done a lot to drive prices down to more affordable levels but it is still not enough. The psychological barrier still exists and will continue to weigh down on mobile usage. If the consumer is going to be made to feel comfortable enough to rely on cloud storage, wherever that might be, than the levy for being away from home must be removed entirely.
