UK callers may begin seeing a reduction in their phone bills this year, after Ofcom imposed limits on the amount that mobile phone providers can charge for out-of-network calls.

The tariff restriction is expected to reduce charges by as much as £500 per year, or around £8 per user. Although it is a mobile issue at heart, the most impact is going to be for landline users who call a mobile number.The new limits, details of which were not announced, will begin on April 1 and will last for 4 years, when the fees will be reviewed again.

I don't know about you, but I think landlines are on their way out. I for one don't even have a landline anymore. I just use my cell as my main number.
