+ - Why you're getting screwed on data roaming->

superglaze writes "It's no surprise that operators/carriers charge a lot for letting customers use the mobile internet while travelling abroad. But where do those charges come from exactly? We at ZDNet UK have done some deep investigation, and it turns out those $10/MB prices are derived from costs that are more like 3c/MB. In other words, you're paying a ridiculous amount for something that costs next to nothing to provide. Consumers, businesses, app developers — everyone is getting screwed here.This has to stop — please sign our petition."
