Anyone who's come back from Europe with $900 in roaming charges (next time use a local SIM!) will appreciate the news that the European Commission has decided to wage war on bloated roaming charges by publishing a website that'll list exactly how much it costs to make a call while outside of your home country. Naturally the wireless carriers aren't happy about the prospect of all this extra transparency, since bloated roaming charges are an easy way for them to pump up revenues, but if they've got nothing to hide they shouldn't really care, should they?
