3 UK calls for faster, deeper EU data roaming price cuts

Monday 16 April 2012 | 10:41 CET | News
3 UK's director of corporate affairs, High Davies, has welcomed EU moves to cut data roaming prices for mobile phone users. He said that the new regulations were a good start, but added that he would like to see things move quicker, with prices falling faster and more sharply. He said that 3 UK believes that the new regulations were still a long way from the kind of parity that would allow smartphone users to use data on their devices however they want, wherever they are.
