Roaming Charge Caps Officially Endorsed

June 27, 2007

The EU Telecom Ministry officially agreed to lower cost of roaming fees for consumers dialing abroad. The new, mandatory roaming cap for all 27 member states of the EU will take effect on Saturday, June 30, 2007, but Telecom companies have till September 2007 to offer customers a new pricing structure that reflects the changes in roaming fees.

According to the roaming fee cap, calls initiated abroad may not cost more than 49 eurocents per minute, and the price of taking a call abroad may not go over 24 eurocents per minute. This decision could reduce cellular bills by as much as 30-70% for mobile phone users, and thus encourage cell phone use while traveling abroad.
