Roaming charges are from June 2017 within Europe thing of the past




The European Parliament has adopted rules allowing roaming costs for mobile data traffic will be abolished by June 15 2017. The rules are there for years to come, but the mood last Tuesday final.

The European Parliament agreed Tuesday with the proposal that makes an end to roaming charges by June 2017. The vote was the last hurdle in this case all the politics involved for years in Europe.

The basic idea is in accordance with the European Commission something that expresses in Brussels with the Rlat acronym, which stands for “Roam Like At Home”. This means that every European in every European country, mobile internet, text messaging and telephony should be able to use as home. Therefore providers since June 2017 may no additional costs attributable to the use of the smartphone abroad. If you have a bundle, have minutes, SMS and MB’s go down there.

There is one exception. A provider that has many roaming customers abroad and that could not be foreseen, may at its telecoms regulator, in the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets example, permission to bring a small levy charged, making it cost effective. Making a profit with roaming is unacceptable.

There is also a ‘fair use policy’ for use abroad, which will be set by the Commission in December 2016. This policy means use into account how much data people, how many Europeans travel, how far prices across the EU come together to lie and should consider the risks of distortion of competition. What exactly does the Commission mean there is not explained.
