Telecom's small size means they have no leverage against the international networks who on-charge them the outrageous rates, So I can only guess that this great announcement will be some form of automatic cut off at some $ level....

I eagerly await being disappointed......

Telecom will announce what are expected to be dramatic cuts to its overseas roaming prices this afternoon, the company has signalled.

After increasing broadband data caps and improving its pre-pay pricing plans, Moutter said last month that mobile roaming was next up on his hit-list as he sought to make the company's pricing more competitive.

Telecom has scheduled a media briefing at 2pm to explain the roaming changes, promising a "breakthrough".

"I've been a customer for four years," Moutter said, referring to his four-year stint as head of Auckland Airport. "I have had those big bills and I'm looking for our company to solve that problem."

An automatic cap isn't really a "breakthrough". At least we only have to wait a few more hours before we know what the story is :)

Edit: With three CEOs there (Telecom, Telecom Retail, Gen-i) it could be big...
