The European Union (EU) today extended for another 10years the ban on mobile roaming fees for all telecom users. They use European handsets when traveling in 27 countries.
The Rome Like at Home scheme is one of the most popular laws for EU citizens and residents. Thanks to this scheme, telecom customers can receive and send phone calls and messages to other EU member countries according to their domestic plan without any additional charges.
The European Council, which represents EU member states, says the deadline expires in June, after which final approval for the extension will be given. Which will come into force by 2032. On the other hand, three major UK telecom companies have decided to reintroduce roaming fees, after which British citizens traveling to EU member states will have to pay an average of 2% extra.
