UK: Ofcom Petitioned Over Mobile Termination Rates [news.bbc.co.uk]
A campaign to lower charges for mobile phone calls between networks will hand telecoms watchdog Ofcom a petition with 114,259 signatures on Wednesday.

The Terminate the Rate campaign wants to see mobile termination rates (MTRs) slashed to reflect actual costs.

These rates are what mobile network operators charge to handle other networks' traffic.

Signatories, including 258 MPs and 60 businesses, are calling for the rates to be slashed from 5p to less than 1p.
