More affordable roaming?

To continue with the previous post, the Industry Committee decided today that as of June 2012 retails clients should be able to buy roaming services from suppliers other than their home service suppliers (Industry committee sets out to lower mobile roaming rates). This means that a consumer could keep his phone number and his service provider for domestic use of his phone, and choose another operator only for foreign calls. If the proposal for this regulation is upheld, that would lead to more competition among roaming service suppliers and possibly lowering of prices for these services. Another proposal is to lower roaming price caps for calls and SMS texts, as well as to cap retail data roaming charges (the currently binding cap expires in June 2012).
