    For any of our members who live in Europe, you might be happy to learn that your mobile service will likely be much cheaper soon when you roam. The European Union is planning to end mobile roaming charges next year. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    While this move is designed to help reduce costs for European consumers, it is also meant to reduce the disparate, fragmented multiple carriers across Europe and foster more cooperation between them. Of course, with the ensuing consolidation, the EU needs to be careful they don't end up with the same situation as we have in the U.S.. It can easily be argued that the U.S. doesn't have enough consumer choice between carriers. Somehow there must be some happy middle ground. Perhaps this new move by the EU will find that perfect balance.
