EU Looking For More Ways to Cut Wireless Bills
If you live in the European Union, chances are you've already heard of the recent win the EU had against the International Roaming Department. The deal has called for outgoing rates to be capped at €0.49 about 66 cents, while incoming calls top out at €0.24 about 33 cents. That's awesome... But there's more. The EU is still looking for more ways to reduce its citizens wireless bills. (Good news if you're hooked on your Berry!)
It's commonplace for carriers around the glove to round up when billing calls. The EU says this could be costing us an average of 20% more per month. What a cash grab! The EU is planning to eliminate this practice. While they haven't taken any action yet, they are watching carriers closely and will decide what to do by the end of the year.
