Viviane Reding has scored another coup in her fight for the European consumer.
BBC NEWS | Business | Cost of texting abroad comes down
Roaming charges are now capped at
SMS = 11c
Make a call from anywhere to anywhere = 43c
Receive a call from anywhere = 19c
Data = 1 euro / MB (Meteor previously charged 10 euro/MB)
And now you must be charged by the second, instead of rounded up to the nearest minute.
The mobile networks - some of the worlds biggest and most powerful companies - faught like cats to prevent this, but Reding bullied it through.
Is Viviane Reding the best ever EU commissioner?
