LONDON- European lawmakers approved new rules on Thursday aimed at guaranteeing equal access to the internet and cutting cellphone charges across the 28- member European Union.

The lawmakers also made it mandatory for mobile phone companies to comply with rules to phase out roaming costs when consumers use cellphones in other European Union countries by the end of next year.

'This vote is the EU delivering for citizens ", Neelie Kroes, the European commissioner responsible for telecommunications said in a statement on Thursday. "This is what the EU is all about - getting rid of barriers to make life easier and less expensive."
