The government probe into mobile phone charges is to drag on until December, leaving users continuing to pay over the odds until after the busy Christmas period.
In May telecomms watchdog Oftel asked the Monopolies and Mergers Commission (MMC) to investigate the cost for BT phone users of calling the Cellnet and Vodafone networks. Oftel claimed tariffs should be slashed from 32 pence per minute to 20 pence per minute.
Yesterday Oftel agreed to extend the probe by three months from the original Septmebr finish date. It said the MMC requested extra time because it, "felt the issues raised are more wide ranging."
