EU - Commission and Berlin team up to bring mobile charges down

(EurActiv)
Germany supports the Commission in its quest to bring down the prices of cross-border mobile phone calls, but the Merkel government wants more far-reaching reductions sooner. Germany wants the caps to come into force during the 2007 summer-holiday season. Operators would not be allowed to tie customers to any tariff model for long periods.
