EU lawmakers have voted for major cuts to the lucrative voice roaming fees the continent's mobile carriers are allowed to charge, while also establishing a cap on data roaming fees for the first time. Though the move falls short of the total elimination of roaming charges some are calling for, multinational carrier Vodafone (VOD) is quite upset. France Telecom (FTE) and Telefonica (TEF) also stand to lose from the fee cuts.
