End of mobile roaming fees as of mid-June

On 25 April the Council of the EU formally adopted the legislative revision that will lead to the abolition of roaming costs for mobile telephone calls within the European Union. This means that as from 15 June, mobile users travelling to other countries in the EU will be able to call, text or surf on the net without paying any extra charges.

This principle of free roaming – also called ‘Roam like at home’ - is meant to facilitate communication when travelling and is not intended for permanent roaming where a customer would take out a cheaper subscription in another country and use it to roam in his home country.

More information is provided in the Council’s press release and the Frequently asked questions.
