Lawmakers agreed a final proposal to scrap roaming charges and introduce rules based on "net neutrality". Roaming charges are a part of life when you travel abroad and customers are penalised that just have to use their mobile phone for data. The good news now is that nonsense will come to end in June 2017, there will however be the usual fair use policy.
Theses discussions were between member states, the European Parliament and the Commission and was the product of three years of discussions between the different parties. As a run up to this change, during 2016, all roaming fees will be capped at five cents per megabyte for mobile data, five cents per minute for calls and two cents per SMS message, writes Duncan Robinson.
