Dataroaming blir billigare, men fortfarande dyrt

Idag på morgonen röstade EU-parlamentets utskott för industrifrågor (ITRE) om pristak på dataroaming i Europa.

Pristaket i konsumentledet blir cirka 5000 kronor (500 euro) per gigabyte från den 1 juli 2012, 3000 kronor/GB från den 1 juli 2013, och 2000 kronor/GB från den 1 juli 2014.

- Det här är ett steg i rätt riktning, men det går inte så lågt som jag hade önskat, säger Christian Engström, EU-parlamentariker för Piratpartiet. Ett pristak i konsumentledet på 200 till 300 kronor per gigabyte hade varit rimligare. Då hade priset för dataroaming hamnat i närheten av vad mobilt internet kostar inom landet.

I dag kostar det mellan 20000 och 40000 kronor per Gigabyte (GB) att använda internet med mobiluppkoppling när man är på resa i andra EU-länder. En vanlig smart telefon använder normalt 0,5 till 1 GB per månad. Mobil datoranvändning ligger på runt 5 GB per månad. Detta ger orimligt höga räkningar för både privatpersoner och småföretagare som är på resande fot.

Nästa steg efter dagens omröstningen i industriutskottet ITRE är att förslaget till prisreglering kommer att gå till förhandling mellan EU-parlamentet och ministerrådet. Därefter kommer EU-parlamentet rösta om förslaget i plenum. Det är alltså inte ett slutgiltigt beslut ännu.

- Det kan fortfarande finnas en liten chans att förbättra förslaget, och från Piratpartiets sida kommer vi kommer fortsätta göra vad vi kan för att sänka priserna ytterligare, säger Christian Engström.

- Vettiga priser på dataroaming är nödvändiga för att den inre marknaden ska fungera i EU. Jag hoppas att det fortfarande finns en möjlighet att få de andra partierna i EU-parlamentet att inse det, säger Christian Engström.

This would mean a UK-based MVNO such as Tesco Mobile, for example, would have the right to demand access to Deutsche Telekom’s network in Germany for Tesco Mobile’s customers. order essays

Few watch aficionados realize that the Japanese brand seiko watch has a history as old as many of its Swiss rivals. Founded in the 1880s, the company began manufacturing wrist seiko watches after World War I and quickly became an innovative leader, developing one of the world’s first seiko automatic and seiko chronograph. But perhaps Seiko’s greatest achievement came about in its race with the American brand Bulova to harness new technology, leading to the quartz watch, which revolutionized the industry and nearly drove the Swiss out of business.
More innovations followed, including the first computer wristwatch, in 1984, and the first nonbattery seiko kinetic watch. To this list we can now add another groundbreaker: the Seiko Spring Drive mechanical movement, which is accurate to one second per day, making it approximately three times more precise than the average mechanical watch. The Spring Drive also provides an enduring seventy-two hours of power reserve (most watches offer about forty) and winds 30 percent faster than a conventional movement.
According to seiko uk, twenty-eight years of work went into developing this movement, and only five of the company’s hundreds of watchmakers possess the requisite skills to assemble it. Regardless of its technological history, the seiko 5 is a skillfully designed watch, with graceful hands and interesting use of off-center dials.

A sudden pallor overspread the detective’s adidas f50 face. Separate himself from the man whom he had so persistently followed step by step! Leave him to wander about in this desert! Fix gazed attentively at Mr, Fogg, and, despite his suspicions Nike soccer and of the struggle which was going on within him, he lowered his eyes before that calm and frank look. I will stay,’ said he. A few moments after, Mr Fogg pressed the young woman’s hand, and, having confided soccer store to her his precious carpet-bag, went off with the sergeant and his little squad. But, before going, he had said to the soldiers, My friends, I will divide five thousand dollars among you, if we blue soccer shoes save the prisoners.’ It was then a little past noon. Aouda retired to a waiting-room, and there she waited alone, thinking of the simple and noble generosity, the tranquil Nike CTR360 Elite courage of Phileas Fogg. He had sacrificed his fortune, and wad now risking his life, all without hesitation, from duty, in silence. Fix did not have the same thoughts, and could scarcely conceal his agitation. He walked indoor soccer shoes feverishly up and down the platform, but soon resumed his outward composure. He now saw the folly of which he had been guilty in letting Fogg go alone. What! This man, whom he had just followed around adidas f50 adizero the world, was permitted now to separate himself from him! He began to accuse and abuse himself, and, as if he were director of police, administered to himself a sound lecture for his greenness. I have been nike mercurial yellow an idiot!’ he thought. And this man will see it. He has gone, and won’t come back! But how is it that I, Fix, who have in my pocket a warrant for his arrest, have been so fascinated by him? Decidedly, I am nothing discounted soccer cleats but an ass!’ So reasoned the detective, while the hours crept by all too slowly. He did not know what to do. Sometimes he was tempted to tell Aouda all; but he could not doubt how the young woman adidas absolado soccer would receive his confidences. What course should he take? He thought of pursuing Fogg across the vast white plains; it did not seem impossible that he might overtake him. Footsteps were Nike total 90 easily printed on the snow! But soon, under a new sheet, every imprint would be effaced. Fix became discouraged. He felt a sort of insurmountable longing to abandon the game altogether. He adidas predator could now leave Fort Kearney station, and pursue his journey homeward in peace.What a journey! The travellers, huddled close together, could not speak for the cold, intensified by the rapidity Nike Mercurial Talaria at which they were going. The sledge sped on as lightly as a boat over the waves. When the breeze came skimming the earth the sledge seemed to be lifted off the ground by its sails. Mudge, who was Nike Mercurial SL at the rudder, kept in a straight line, and by a turn of his hand checked the lurches which the vehicle had a tendency to make. lzle

Problemet är att exempelvis Telia inte kan sänka roaming avgifterna för sina kunder(Om de inte väljer att stå för en del av kostnaden själva), de kan bara sänka priserna för utländska operatörer vars kunder nyttjar telias nät, (Det är därför vi har de roaming priser vi har idag).

Om t.ex både svenska och norska operatörer vill erbjuda sina kunder billig roaming i norge/sverige så brukar det gå ganska smidigt att få till bra avtal men när det gäller länder där kunderna har ett väldigt lågt intresse av att utnyttja svenska mobilnät så har våra operatörer ett extremt dåligt förhandligsläge.

2000 kronor är tillräckligt lågt för att folk ska ha råd att använda det. När folk har råd att använda det kommer det löna sig att sänka priserna ytterliggare för att ta över användare från konkurrenterna.
