Comment Neelie
[...] We've already taken some action in the past. And indeed the current Regulation has to a certain extent made progress: by capping wholesale and retail prices it has stopped the worst excesses of abuse, providing both protection to consumers and confidence that they can use their phones abroad. However, prices remain clustered around regulated caps and competition is not developing. Therefore, in the absence of additional measures, roaming tariffs would probably increase again after the expiry of the current caps in July 2012.
