Ofcom, the independent regulator and competition authority of the UK's communication industries, has voiced its approval following T-Mobile's cuts to text and data roaming charges in countries within the European Union (EU).
Chief Executive Ed Richards led the praise, indicating he was pleased that the firm had reduced the cost of data roaming for those travelling abroad, saying that the previous charges had discouraged use of the mobile broadband while abroad.
He commented: "Consumers will benefit from this decision as the summer holiday season begins. This is an important first step towards ensuring that mobile operators introduce fair and transparent pricing for all consumers whilst abroad."
We have predicted in a recent press release that mobile broadband will soon be offered as a part of mobile phone contracts marketed by providers, as the price cutting continues.
