EU drops roaming charges

Yordan, 15 June 2017

Citizens of the European Union, rejoice! The EU decision to abolish roaming charges comes in effect today and now calls, texts, and data on mobile devices cost the same regardless if you are at home or in any other country in the EU.

The European Commission said the termination of roaming charges is “true European success story.”

Until now connection charges have been added when you were calling, texting or using data in a different EU member-state. The actual charges were dropping progressively, but now finally they are completely removed.

The new legislation means travelers can use their data allowance (up to a reasonable usage limit) in any of the 28 member-states of the Union. Members of the European Economic Area Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein would join the group "shortly after June 15".

In case you are wondering the maximum data you can use in another EU member in GB equals your pre-VAT monthly subscription fee divided by €7.7 and multiplied by two. If that exceeds your normal allowance then the limit is unchanged.

Sure, the right question is forward to where? I have to admit your forward sounds a lot like standing in the ledge of the cliff... and forward we go.

Nobody wants out. The people don't want out, some of the elites want out: http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-eu-poll­­-idUKKBN14I002 You were played by the Rupert Murdoch media (Sun and similar) and proud of it... for shame.
