EU exec may consider ceiling on roaming fees

European Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes might consider imposing ceilings on the roaming charges of mobile phone operators, but ruled out creating fixed roaming-service charges across Europe, a Dow Jones report said.

Quoted by Dow Jones while speaking at a European Parliament committee meeting dealing with internal market and consumer protection affairs, Kroes also said she had written a letter to Slovakia, requesting information about reports that the Slovak government offered a 53-million-euro state-aid package to carmaker Peugeot-Citroen to set up production locally.

If Slovakia acknowledges the aid package, Brussels regulators must check if the package could be allowed under European competition rules, the report said.
