Mobile charge petition detailed by 3 Mobile
29 October 2009 — 2:47 PM
More than 114,000 people - which may include mobile recycling customers - have given their backing to a new initiative to change the way call charges are priced.
As part of the Terminate the Rate campaign, which is supported by a number of telecommunications companies like BT and 3 Mobile, a petition has been created listing the signatures of these consumers that will be handed to Ofcom.
The paper asked the public to voice their opinion on the lowering of mobile termination rates (MTRs), which help drive up the cost of mobile calling when networks are crossed.
John Petter, managing director at BT Retail and campaign spokesman, said that the number included 258 MPs and over 60 businesses, groups and councils.
"This petition is only the first stage in an ongoing campaign to show how MTRs stifle competition and increase the cost of calling mobiles - our goal remains for them to be set according to what they actually cost," he added.
In other news from 3 Mobile, the company added the Sony Ericsson Satio to its range this week.
