Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] And that's bad news for consumers. With hundreds of providers in Europe, mostly you can only choose among 3 or 4. And it's too hard to communicate across borders. Quality is poor; there are few innovative services beyond basic phone calls; and prices are unfairly high. If I phone the town next door, within our single market, that shouldn't count as a costly "international" call.

There's also the inverse problem of accidental roaming near national borders: people in Kent, UK, get "welcome to France" SMS messages and are then charged international rates!
