T-Mobile to cut tariffs in Europe

15 Dec 2006

Ahead of the proposed cap on international roaming charges the EU wishes to impose on cellcos, Germany’s T-Mobile, the wireless arm of the incumbent Deutsche Telekom, has said it will cut its own tariffs for calls within Europe by 14% from next year. The new tariffs, which will see roaming fees lowered from EUR0.69 to EUR0.59 (USD0.91 to USD0.78), will apply to calls made in all European Union member states, plus Croatia. T-Mobile had close to 31 million subscribers in Germany at the end of September 2006, and has operations in the UK, US and several eastern European countries.
