Mobile signals don't recognise the border

John Murray Brown looks at the vexed question of mobile phone tarriffs in border areas. Apparently 10% of the NI population recieve calls from networks on the other side of the border, and have to pay premium roaming charges as a result. I know from one recent visit the that my own T-Mobile phone kicked into the Vodafone Ireland network on the hill above Eglinton, Co Derry. Greg Campbell suggests there should be a regulator for Britain and Ireland.
