Bosnia and Herzegovina govt seeks postponement of cut in Western Balkans roaming costs

Monday 4 March 2019 | 14:33 CET | News
The government of Bosnia and Herzegovina has asked to postpone the signing of an agreement to reduce the cost of roaming services in the Western Balkans region. According to Klix, this is because telecom operators in the country earn around BAM 100 million from roaming fees and are in no hurry to relinquish this gain. Bosnia and Herzegovina has requested that the introduction of "roam like home" be put back to 01 January 2021.
