Second phase of telecoms sectoral inquiry on mobile roaming

United Kingdom

The Commission has launched the second phase of its telecommunications sector inquiry under the competition rules. It has requested formal information concerning the conditions and pricing of the national and international mobile roaming. Almost two hundred such requests were sent out simultaneously EU wide to national competition authorities and telecommunications regulators as well as to mobile network operators and service providers. Recipients have a deadline of two months to reply. (IP/00/111, 4 February 2000).
