Consumers could soon get a single price for mobile phone calls across Europe if Vodafone AirTouch gets its way.
BT Cellnet rolled out a 'one rate' service across 14 European states earlier this summer. Vodafone is now planning to take BT head on and undercut the operator by using an alliance of local partners.
The mobile operator is believed to be in talks with Cegetel of France and Airtel of Spain with a view to kicking off the cut-price service.
Vodafone declined to comment.
It is thought that Vodafone is keen to build up a European customer base ready for its onslaught of net phones which will provide email access.
