Ofcom looks into roaming mobile charges
Communications regulator Ofcom said it was investigating whether consumers are overcharged for "international romaing", using their mobile phones abroad, adding that the probe was as part of a European Commission initiative. Reuters reports.
"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."
