Dutch mobile phone companies are poised to increase their charges after years of falling tariffs, the Financieele Dagblad reports on Monday.
The paper says T-Mobile is considering a 5% to 10% rise in fees and that Vodafone also expects prices to go up.
Phone firms say they have to increase charges because the European Commission plans to force them to cut cross-border prices.
‘That means our margins will be reduced sharply and price rises elsewhere will be unavoidable,’ T-Mobile Nederland chairman Niek Jan van Damme told the paper.
