IDG reports: "Network service provider Equant NV announced Wednesday an international roaming service for WAP (Wireless
Application Protocol) that will allow customers to reach WAP services via a local phone number in 22 countries.
Although mobile service providers commonly offer roaming service to other countries and continents for voice calls,
WAP users have had to make an expensive long-distance call back to their carrier's WAP gateways at home when
they wanted data services over the mobile Internet system."
