GSMA attacks new EU roaming proposals

The skirmish between the European Commission and the mobile industry over regulating mobile-phone roaming rates across European Union countries has heated up again. The GSM Association declared that the EC's latest proposal to regulate roaming by equalizing retail prices across EU countries will have a disastrous impact on Europe's mobile industry. According to the GSMA, "the Commission plans to impose an arbitrary retail price cap across Europe, ignoring the fundamental geographic, demographic, regulatory and commercial differences between the 25 countries of the European Union." The GSMA, argues that "the imposition of such a price cap" will reduce competition and innovation among European mobile operators, damaging the industry.
