Phone : Towards the End of Roaming Charges in Europe

Posted on Apr 3 2014 - 7:07pm by Admin

The measure is expected by Europeans. Parliament in Strasbourg has taken an important step Thursday toward the end of roaming charges by 25 December 2015 for calls or SMS sent from abroad.

Are two pitfalls : these provisions have yet to be approved by the EU Member States and operators can always impose the terms of use “reasonable.” A still vague notion that the legislature should define . But being optimistic if the project is successful, this will complete the overcharged users when they use their mobile phone in another EU country than their own.


Earlier this year , the Commission published a survey which showed that 94 % of Europeans reduce their use of mobile internet abroad, and one in four Europeans turned off the phone for fear of the costs generated by the reception call or SMS .

“Today’s vote is an important step towards strengthening the single telecoms market . Parliament wants to eliminate roaming charges for calls , messages and mobile internet by 15 December 2015 ” , welcomed the conservative Spanish Pilar del Castillo Vera , the text of which was adopted by 534 votes favor, 25 against and 58 abstentions.

“The EU must be used to remove barriers ”

European Commissioner Neelie Kroes New Technologies , which was the abolition of roaming charges a priority of his mandate to the European Commission , can boast of a victory, even if the surprises are not all completely excluded for European users.

“This vote is the answer that the EU brings the expectations of the population and that is exactly what the EU is to serve: remove obstacles to make the lives of Europeans easier and less costly ,” said Commissioner , while European elections take place in less than two months .

In fact , the disappearance of charge “roaming” has already been anticipated in part by mobile operators who promote integration of European destinations in their unlimited plans ads.

As for the states, there is no requirement to consider the text before the end of the year. And operators should put pressure on governments to adopt the text is rejected. “Our industry already in trouble is found once again punctured while operators face major investments of nearly € 30 billion to finance the deployment of 4G mobile of optical fiber in the fixed ” , has deplored the French Federation of telecoms.
