[EurActiv] The European Commission will next week adopt a long-awaited recommendation on mobile termination rates, EurActiv has learned. The text will set July 2012 as a compromise deadline to slash these wholesale charges, with an expected indirect benefit for consumers.
The recommendation is scheduled to be adopted on 7 May, EU sources close to the dossier told EurActiv. The text is not legally binding, but will de facto oblige telecoms companies to adapt to the new legal landscape.
