    Good news for mobile-phone-use in EU.

    Post by papa_umau on Fri 11 May 2012, 1:23 pm

    It was reported today that from this summer mobile-phone-users will pay less for many of the "roaming" charges that have been previously and very expensively made for the EU countries in the past.

    When in EU countries - it was announced - that people travelling in the EU will pay less for calls, texts and web-roaming.

    From July it will cost 24p a minute to call from another EU country, 7p to receive a call, 8p per text and 58p per megabyte to browse the internet.

    This important move was voted through by the European Parliament.

    While it is obvious that these charges are still quite high they are going to be a vast improvement on what they used to be.

    Well, I suppose that that is good news for the people that can afford to go abroad for their holidays. As I can't it is as much use to me as a plastic poker might be.

    Sorry if my pleading poverty all the time upsets you - or anybody ! Evil or Very Mad

    No my dear it does not bother me one bit as I am well aware that even fairly well-paid teachers like you still have to struggle to subsist in these cruel days of austerity.

    While this awful coalition is in charge do not expect your life to get any easier any time soon.

    I couldn't agree with you more paps - we need a tax cutting, expenditure cutting Conservative government to put us back on the track to prosperity so cruelly taken away from us by 13 years of Labour mis-rule

    Now you are just sloganising Clapco !

    You REALLY sound like Cameron when you do that !

    While I am always keen on whatever government of whatever hue getting rid of wastage I do not support the plans of the Tories, in particular, to keep hammering the ordinary man/woman on the streets.

    It seems, that you do ??????
