Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] How do you explain why it costs more to call or text across borders than within them, even when there is no objective extra cost? How do you explain why the seamless service they expect drops off when you change country? How do you explain to an innovative start-up why they face different costs and diverging quality to provide the same services? And how does that fit with the promise of a fast-developing digital world; with new gadgets and new services appearing all the time? Will connected cars have to pay roaming surcharges? Come on. That is not what a single market is about.
