Minister calls for all island mobile tariffs

Barry Gardiner calls for more coherence in mobile phone charging on an all island basis:”We are seeking the mobile operators to enter into joint arrangements on a cross-border basis to offer customers all-island tariffs. While we acknowledge that a number of operators offer all-island tariff options it is disappointing that where these are available they are limited to contract customers only. We want to see all-island rates extended to ‘pay-as-you-go’ mobile users, who represent around 70% of the mobile customer base, and who deserve better.”
