PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I always see The Netherlands - my home country - as a small, easily graspable version of other, larger and more important western countries and even the west as a whole. In light of this,'s Arnoud Wokke points to a very interesting report about the Dutch telecommunications market.

EU operators to drop subsidies totally

There is a lot of talk among all of major EU operators to drop the subsidised prices altogether. The operators get much more flexibility and you get better plans.

I doubt that the subsidies will be dropped, but more and more operators are going for leasing model(where you pay for your plan and separate payment for your phone - like you would paying out a lease with 0% interest)
