There's good news for people who make regular phone calls to other EU countries.

From today (Wednesday), consumers calling from their country to another EU Member State will pay a maximum of 19 cent per minute plus VAT.

The cost of sending text messages will be frozen at six cent each plus VAT.

Grace Bolton of the EU Commission office in Dublin says the move is aimed at reducing telecommunications costs within the European Union.
