Motion text

That this House notes the hidden charges which arise when calling a mobile on a different network or when calling a mobile from a landline; further notes that this helps stifle competition, prevents the development of flat-rate unlimited tariffs, and holds back innovation in the telecommunications sector; welcomes the 114,259 signatures gathered by the Terminate the Rate campaign and the 60 organisations supporting the lowering of the rate; and calls on Ofcom to take action immediately to reduce the Mobile Termination Rate charge and deliver better value for money.
