Roaming charges

Roaming within the EU will be free of charge for unlimited periods from 15 June 2017. The first proposal to limit free roaming to 90 days was rectified by the European Commission as it was deemed to be discriminatory for example for cross-border workers and Erasmus students who spend a lot of time in another country.

However, a system of monitoring by companies is expected to be authorised in order to curb abuses.

Roaming charges: excessive charges applied by mobile phone providers to calls made abroad.
