It's price fixing - like when the EU tell mobile phone companies to make their roaming charges lower.
Actually what the EU did (following a proposal from the commission, debate and approval from the Parliament and acceptance by the Member States in the Council) was to tell EU companies they could not charge more for services provided in another Member State.

They did not fix prices, but emphasized that this principle of the single market must be applied. Telcoms can charge anything they want.
