EuropeActive and all Europeans welcomed the beginning of a new era. Today, 15th June 2017, no more roaming fees in the EU will be applied. You will not need to spend any extra when making calls, sending texts or using your mobile data while abroad – the same amount like at home will be charged.
In order to celebrate this event, the Council launched the hashtag #roamlikeathome and the 3 EU Institutions came up with a joint statement: "The European Union is about bringing people together and making their lives easier. The end of roaming charges is a true European success story […] the end of roaming charges is at the foundation of the EU's Digital Single Market and is another step towards building a united and sustainable European digital society, accessible for all our citizens".
