Roaming Charges are about to become a thing of the past when you travel in Europe as the European Council has voted to finally put and end to the charges.
From the 15th of June 2017 you will no longer pay roaming charges when you travel in Europe, you will be charge the same as you are at home for calls, text and data.
“Today’s final vote in the Council clears the path for free roaming,” said Dr Emmanuel Mallia, the Maltese Minister for Competitiveness and Digital, Maritime and Services Economy. “When Europeans go on holiday this summer, they can enjoy the freedom of being able to stay in touch and use the internet as if they were at home. The EU is making our lives easier in very practical ways.”
This will apply to all European countries and also to Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway after the 15th of June 2017.
