Roaming a headache along Irish border

Sep 13, 2005

Ireland has given mobile-phone operators three months to solve problems involving unexpected roaming charges in border areas.

Ireland Online said that communications officials in Ireland and Northern Ireland called Tuesday for a single tariff for the entire island as a way of ending annoying cross-border roaming charges.

Ireland Online said mobile users frequently get hit with roaming charges when their phones inadvertently pick up signals from the other side of the frontier.
