Lower roaming costs as from Sunday


Roaming charges in the EU will go down again on Sunday as the newest rules will come into force and cap prices for calls, SMS and internet use on the mobile.
This followes the 150,000-strong campaign "Europeans for Fair Roaming" that brought down prices much more than originally planned.
According to the new EU law, prices for using mobile phones abroad will
be lowered to 29ct/min for calls and 70ct/MB for internet access in July
2012 and will keep going down to 19ct/min for calls and 20ct/MB for
internet access by 2014.
Users will also be allowed to choose a different operator for roaming
which is expected to bring about more competition. Most operators are
already starting to offer roaming packages for travellers in reaction to
the new law.
