  • EU plan for mobile phones
    W300i Sony Ericsson K850i Sony Ericsson K800i Sony Ericsson K750i EU plan for mobile phones Tue 28 Mar 2006 The European Commission is considering a proposal to scrap roaming charges the extra fee for receiving mobile phone calls abroad according to Viviane Reding the European Information Society and Media Commissioner As the owner of the most European mobile companies Vodafone is estimated to collect more than 8 per cent of its revenue from roaming and will be worst hit by the EU s price cutting plan Reding said an EU regulation could also ensure that calls made abroad could be priced as if they were made back home For example a British tourist making a local call in Spain would pay the same amount as if he had made the call in Britain with a similar arrangement for pricing international calls The EU regulation would ensure that operators do not charge operators from other countries substantially more than the actual cost Reding said Reding hopes the European Commission will adopt the proposal for a regulation in June after further consultation It is expected to come into force next year after approval from member states and the European Parliament Mobile phone operators say they have already acted to keep down roaming prices They say calls abroad cost more than domestic call charges because there are additional costs involved in delivering calls through foreign networks Vodafone has already announced the end of roaming charges for its Republic of Ireland customers who visit Northern Ireland and Britain We feel this is an extra layer of regulation which is unnecessary said David Pringle spokesman for GSM Europe which represents operators such as Vodafone Related Mobile Phone articles Motorola Introduces the 3G Motorola E1070 Handset Mon 27 Mar 2006 Nokia Predicts Death of Music Industry

  • Guide to cut cost of phoning home from abroad
    Wed 25 Jan 2006 According to telecoms watchdog Ofcom mobile phone users could be paying up to five times more than they need to for making calls abroad The majority of holidaymakers and those on business would be better off using payphones or even buying a new mobile phone when overseas according to the UK telephone watchdog A spokesman said Ofcom was looking at two issues One thing is that people are unsure of charges they are going to incur when they travel abroad The second issue is to look at the international market and at the amount one operator charges another The European Commission EC is working with national regulators on an initiative to combat unfair behaviour by networks he added Prices are pushed up because the foreign network provider charges the UK operator who then bills the customer This means making calls and sending texts from abroad usually costs more especially for pay as you go customers The spokesman continued Research has shown that some consumers are not aware of the price of international roaming Ofcom wants to bring attention to it and advise as to how consumers can keep call costs down when abroad The guide called Using Your Mobile Abroad includes examples of how customers using T Mobile O2 Vodafone 3 and Orange could save money by switching to a different tariff with the same operator Vodafone users could reduce costs by around 80 per cent by switching from a standard pay monthly tariff to the Vodafone Passport tariff the report suggests O2 now offers an International Traveller Service which gives savings of 30 70 per cent on the cost of using the phone overseas and T mobile is to re launch its World Class service offering cheaper calls with some networks in 40 countries Orange
