EU-Kommissarin Viviane Reding demands from the cellphone providers lower prices for data transfers not in the own country.
750 times higher price
At Hofer is 1 GB Yes internet withloug contract available for 20.--EUR. With contract, but in the wrong country can 1 GB cost 15,000.--EUR. 750 times more. When in a supermarket one bottle mineral water costs 50 Cent, this may cost in a noble restaurant 5.-EUR, but not 375.--EUR. That's usury!
Against equal treatment
The providers come with unbelievable messages. The investions should make wins. He means for this, it's necessary to charge from a foreigner several hundred times more than from a native. Something like a cab driver takes from a native 8.--EUR, but from a foreigner 3000.--EUR for the same travel.
What happens to a cab driver charging from a passenger 3000.--EUR instead of usual 8.--EUR? He will loose his licence and will be at court for attempted fraud.
