The UK consumer watchdog, Consumer Focus, has warned football fans going to South Africa to be very careful not to use thew Internet via their phones, or send/receive phone calls, during their stay - especially assuming that Vodafone's SA network will be fair in its roaming prices (get a Passport before you go)! As I have previously blogged here and here, consumers assume that its same technology, same network, so same price - and the 100,000% mark-up comes as a surprise.
This scandal continues to grow - regulate EU roaming charges and the GSM cabal just raises international rates. Now that's what I call anti-net neutrality!
