European Union is in favour of limiting the cost of SMS and mobile Web surfing between nation states. The ministers have given consent to cap the retail charge for sending a cross-border short text message at 11 euro cents, or 14 American cents. This implies that cost for sending Text across European borders would drop by an average of 62% from the current 29 euro cents. The data roaming charges are also expected to fall in the same line of SMS.
