Isle of Man mobile phone charges set to fall

Mobile phone customers in the Isle of Man could see a significant reduction in their bills.

The Communication Commission has proposed moves to bring Manx prices more in line with those in Europe.

Island customers are currently charged nearly double the European average.

A spokesman from the communications commission confirmed the current Manx mobile charges (7.4p per minute peak) are almost double those in Europe (4p per minute peak).

The organisation will now enter talks with both mobile providers on the Isle of Man, Sure and Manx Telecom, with a view to reducing prices.

The Communications Commission is a statutory board of the Isle of Man Government and has responsibility for the licensing and regulation of telecommunications and broadcasting on the Isle of Man.
