On the territory of the European Union began to operate the law on the abolition of roaming charges
Today, EU citizens will no longer pay roaming charges for international calls between countries. About this in a joint statement, said the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani and Prime Minister of the presidency in the EU Council of Malta Joseph Muscat.
“The EU unites people and makes their life easier. The late fees for roaming is a true European success story”, — quotes “Interfax” an excerpt from the joint statement.
It is noted that some European operators have introduced a new rule a few days before 15 June. “From now on, citizens who are traveling within the EU will be able to call, write and communicate using mobile devices for the same price as at home. The elimination of roaming fees is one of the largest and most tangible success of the EU” — said in a joint statement.
We will remind, the authorities of the European Union agreed to abolish roaming charges from 15 June 2017. The maximum margin of a minute of conversation in the network of European operator for a subscriber not from the EU will amount to €0,032 €0.01 per SMS. In addition, the cost of 1 GB of traffic will be reduced to €2.5 in 2022.
