EU fails to reach accord on roaming rules

The European Union failed to come to an agreement about price caps on roaming fees or whether roaming customers should be switched to a regulated rate. The two areas that proved to be the stumbling blocks for the governing body were rules for "opt in, opt out" and the limits of the caps. A second round of discussion will commence on May 2, which is in line with the EU's promise to rule on the issue by the summer.
