Standard charges for non eu countries

Anyone else out there think that charging £2 a minute for calls outside the EU as standard is fair?? I was told by O2 that it was standard in the industry! Ever other supplier may well charge this amount but does it make it right? R we being stepped on by monopolising suppliers that have agreed with each other to charge such a high charge? Please let me know ur feelings?

Re: Standard charges for non eu countries

How do you suggest that O2 control how much other networks abroad charge for handling calls and messages?


No idea where your figure of £2 a minute comes from.
