Irish governments make call for all-Ireland mobile tariffs

The phone companies are understood to favour a technical solution to cross-border roaming, but the main political parties are petitioning instead for an all-Ireland tariff, saying the cellcos’ approach will only reduce, not eradicate the problem. In some areas customers are being charged an international rate when their signals are picked up by transmitters on the other side of the border
