Roaming Charges: Renewed drive on mobile costs

There is a compromise in the making, that doesn't seduce us : (The Financial Times)-

Vital talks resume in Brussels today aimed at reaching a deal to cut sharply the cost of international mobile telephone calls in the European Union after negotiations faltered yesterday.

EU member states and the European parliament must agree on the plan to reduce by up to 70 per cent the fees consumers pay to make and receive calls while travelling elsewhere in the union.

The sides differed on the levels of the price caps to be imposed on operators such as Vodafone and clashed on whether customers should be switched to lower charges automatically or choose them voluntarily.

We, consumers, have to wait this out. What'll be the outcome? We do not settle for less than the European ministers and the Parliament decided upon, last month.
Otherwise, what will we do?
