It’s nice to see an EU Commisisoner call it as she sees it – particularly if it is the same way as our customers see it – and if she has the power to do something about it.

Her previous job was as Competition Commissioner so Neelie Kroes knows what to do about it when she says “Less than 5 cents for downloading a MB of data at home can turn into €2.60 per MB when they cross an invisible, and mostly artificial, border! Don’t tell me that is all funding new investment in better networks; I can’t defend that to citizens. I can’t defend it for the simple reason that it isn’t true.”
