EU setback for mobile phone industry
The European mobile phone industry on Thursday suffered a setback when an influential parliamentary committee backed plans to slash the cost of cross-border calls. The FT reports.
"Legislators in Brussels voted to protect the EU's 479m mobile phone users from expensive fees to make and receive calls while travelling in European countries other than their own.
The industry committee in the European parliament called for maximum charges of EU0.4 per minute to make a call and EU0.15 per minute to receive one."
