EU - Mobile operators deceitful on charges, says EU consumer group

(EurActiv)
Mobile phone operators could easily afford to lower roaming charges to less than what the Commission is asking for, but are engaged in large-scale collusion to keep prices up. Mobile phone operators are "twisting the truth" when they claim to have cut the price of making phone calls abroad, according to a study on roaming charges published on 20 February 2007 by the European Consumer Organisation (BEUC) and French consumer group UFC-Que Choisir.
