Mobile Phone Roaming Caps in the EU Upheld by European Union Court of Justice (ECJ)

A number of sources have picked up the story that the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has upheld an EU law, the so-called Roaming Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 544/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 June 2009 amending Regulation (EC) No 717/2007 on roaming on public mobile telephone networks within the Community and Directive 2002/21/EC on a common regulatory framework for electronic communications networks and services), which puts caps on mobile phone roaming charges in the European Union.
