Danish consumer group slams price rises for roaming change

Thursday 25 May 2017 | 12:12 CET | News
The Danish consumer council Taenk is designating 06 June as switching day, urging the public to change provider after three out of four mobile firms are raising prices after the EU directive scrapping the international roaming surcharge. People should not simply accept the hikes, it said, as many already pay for talktime and mobile internet that they do not use. In reality, average data use is approximately six times lower than the average allowance in Danish subscriptions.
