On 17 July 2008 the European Commission unveiled a new website that displays the prices currently charged to EU consumers who use their mobile phones for sending text messages or accessing the internet from another Member State. According to the figures released, the 2.5 billion text messages sent every year by roaming customers in the European Union cost over ten times more than domestic text messages. These findings, along with the results of a public consultation that ended on 2 July, will now feed into the Commission's current review of the scope of the EU Roaming Regulation. This Regulation entered into force on 30 June 2007 and introduced the Eurotariff, which has led to savings of up to 60 per cent for consumers, but applies only to calls and not to text messages. The Commission is required to report on its implementation by 30 December 2008 and make proposals as to whether to extend its time and scope. New measures regarding text messages could be proposed by the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council in early autumn.
