Use Google Maps on phone – while you Roam!

(EU to end mobile roaming charges next year via The Telegraph)

European politicians at Brussels vote for a roaming-free telecom universe in Europe from 2014. Users will benefit from ‘home rates’ for voice calls, texts & internet access across boundaries in Europe.

While this might boost industry consolidation in the years to come – I see one clear beneficiary in this race – internet based application providers. 

Surely, the likes of Google Maps will see a spike in usage – “Roaming Charges” has been the biggest deterrent to me using the service on the mobile while driving across Europe.
