What do I think would be best for consumers?

I think that a commitee should figure out the value of roaming on another carriers network.

Once a value is established, that will be the standard amount that would be charged for a roaming agreement, no matter the company, or coverage area. The only thing that would sway the charges would be network speed (2G, 3G, 4G).

Charge the same amount to any carrier anywhere that wants a roaming agreement in any area, regardless of anything except network type. Hard to argue that, methinks.

That is so arbitrary and easily manipulated that I have to reject it out of hand.
Not putting you down, but I can come up with so many arguments against it that I really don't know where to start.

Any committee is only 'neutral' to the advocates who agree with it's decision.
Those who got 'stiffed' will maintain that the decision was tainted. If they have enough money and influence, they will be successful in changing the decision unless the committee members are declared infallible Gods and that label is enforced by some law.

oops.. I just described the FCC....
