European Union scraps mobile roaming charges

15 June 2017
EU abolishes roaming charges

Mobile users can call, text & use their data allowance at the same price as their domestic tariff

From 15 June, roaming charges within the European Union have been abolished. Europeans travelling within the EU can now call, text and use their data allowance at the same price as their domestic tariff.

As roaming charges are consigned to the past, Europeans can look forward to a future without shock bills after using their call and data allowances when working, studying or travelling within the EU.

Roaming charges have been abolished within every EU country as well as Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Great Britain (as long it remains in the EU). Mobile users may still face roaming charges in Switzerland and non-European-states.
