End of EU Mobile Roaming Charges?

Dec 16, 2015

Members of the European parliament have voted to scrap mobile roaming charges from June, stopping travellers returning home to a massive phone bill racked up on their travels. 

So will we finally see an end to roaming charges? Well, no, not quite. Some small charges can still be levied and roaming is subject to fair use policies – so if you use your phone too much in another Member State you could still be hit with a surcharge. So while ‘EU ends roaming’ sounds like a nice news story, it’s rather overdoing it. It’s more that roaming – for data, calls and SMS – has been reduced enough to mean most people can do it without getting a nasty shock.
