Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the paper is to analyze the need for regulation of international roaming within EU beyond 2010.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper analyzes roaming costs, market conditions and present regulation. On this basis, future prospects for competition in international roaming are discussed.

Findings

Market developments indicate that regulation of international roaming charges will be needed for some time, before competition can ensure that roaming charges are at a level that reflects the underlying costs.

Research limitations/implications

The paper limits its analysis to roaming of voice services, and excludes analysis of roaming of data service services.

Originality/value

The paper contributes to the ongoing discussion on the need to regulate international roaming charges.
