T-Mobile: No reason to cut data charges

A top T-Mobile exec sees no reason for the operator to cut charges, as industry players complain that prices are 'ridiculous'

There are few better opportunities to discuss data-roaming charges than Mobile World Congress, the industry's annual gathering in Barcelona.

That's why, in February, ZDNet UK used the conference to discuss the fees with a variety of industry players, including software company executives, telecoms regulators and others.

Most expressed frustration, but the most illuminating comments came from T-Mobile strategist David Gannon, who said there was no business incentive for his company to cut its data-roaming rates, as there is no international regulator to make it do so.
