European Call Roaming update

Mobile operators in Europe face a further cut in their revenues after a European Commission ruling to reduce retail prices for roaming calls – effective 1st July 2011

European mobile subscribers opting for the EU-regulated "Eurotariff" will pay no more than €0.35 per minute for calls made and €0.11 cents per minute for calls received while abroad in the EU. This is the last in the series of regulated price cuts under the current EU Roaming Regulation, which expires in June 2012.

South African’s abroad pay around R23per minute (€2.30!) for calls made and R5per minute (€0.50!) for calls received whilst in Europe (5x the price!). Rates vary per destination and based on what you mobile service operator charges.
