Big promises for mobile roaming cut
Telecom will announce what are expected to be dramatic cuts to its overseas roaming prices this afternoon, the company has signalled.
After increasing broadband data caps and improving its pre-pay pricing plans, new chief executive Simon Moutter said last month that mobile roaming was next up on his hit-list as he sought to make the company's pricing more competitive.
Telecom has scheduled a media briefing at 2pm to explain the roaming changes, promising a "breakthrough".
"I've been a customer for four years," Moutter said, referring to his four-year stint as head of Auckland Airport. "I have had those big bills and I'm looking for our company to solve that problem."
