We'll be writing a full story on this shortly, but news has just come through that T-Mobile's cut its data roaming rates by 80 percent. You know how painful it is to get charged £7.50 per megabyte while roaming in Europe? Well, as of July 1 that rate will be cut down to £1.50 per megabyte!

Funny, you'd never guess that July 1 was the deadline set by Viviane Reding for operators to cut their data roaming rates or else. It's not just data roaming rates she wants cut, it's also the charges for text messaging - and as of the end of August, T-Mobile's SMS roaming rates in Europe will be cut from 40p to 25p.

We've waited a long time for this. Let the slashing commence!
