How large is my bill!!!

March 20, 2010

BBC reports that the EU cap for downloading data doesn’t come into effect until the 1st July.

The consumers’ association Which? is warning that people going abroad with smartphones can still face huge bills if they connect to the internet.

By 1 July, new rules will come into force in the European Union which will cap bills for downloading data.

But, until then, people travelling in Europe could face unlimited bills.

There is something quite annoying in a single market like the EU that in some ways the EU is treated as one market, however in other ways (as in with phones) that the single market is ignored and you have these national markets that do not transcend international barriers.
