MEPs provide confrontation with Council abolish roaming




Members of the European Parliament, the Council of Ministers strongly urged to abolish roaming rates before the end of the year. The Council agreed on a watered down proposal to postpone until 2018 and roam up to 5MB per day from its own collection.

The Council of the European Union wants the roaming charges for mobile internet are provisionally not abolished, but users from 2016 up to 5MB per day may roam from their own collection. Two years would have to be viewed later or roaming charges may still on the ramp. That proposal is at odds with that of the European Parliament.

In an urgent letter let 126 parliamentarians from the European Parliament can know anything seen in the Commission’s proposals. In a letter, they argue that the gap between a daily limit of 5MB and the whole banning roaming “immense” and it should be noted that citizens will be disappointed if the proposals are actually converted into legislation. MEP for D66 speaks of a “major insult to the European Parliament and especially for Europeans who want their phone bill down.”
