Roaming charges in Europe were supposed to be removed by the end of 2015, which would have been great news for people traveling within the EU and would have put and end to high bills when you are abroad.
Now it would appear that the European regulators have backtracked on their original plans to bans roaming charges within Europe, and these charges will apparently continue to be applied until 2018.
The news comes from a report by the BBC who have seen some documents relating to the changes to the previous plans.
According to documents seen by the BBC, far from ending data roaming charges as was promised, the European Commission has recommended that operators be allowed to add surcharges to their domestic rates.
It looks like we may have to wait until 2018 to see roaming charges fully removed, although this could also change and we could end up continuing to pay these high charges when we travel abroad.Filed Under: Technology News, Top News
