EU fails to agree on cell phone roaming rules
According to Reuters, EU politicians and officials on Tuesday failed to resolve key details of a plan to cut the cost of calling abroad on cell phones.
"Representatives of the European Parliament, the Commission and member states tried to agree the levels at which price caps should be set and whether consumers should be automatically switched to the regulated rates.
"There has been no agreement today," an EU diplomat told Reuters. "There will be a second round of talks on May 2."
