Roaming without borders
5 April 2017
Following the latest European Commission proposal on wholesale roaming surcharges across the EEA, on 5 and 6 April, MEPs will debate on and vote for amending Regulation (EU) No 531/2012 as regards rules for wholesale roaming markets.
With wholesale roaming charges set to be reduced to zero, it is now of vital importance for policymakers to focus on the potential for unintended consequences from RLAH, such as the possibility of mobile providers raising charges for domestic phone users in order to compensate for lost revenue from roaming.
In order to facilitate the integration of European telecoms markets, it is essential to bring down domestic barriers to competition.
