Council gives final OK to wholesale roaming price caps

Wednesday 26 April 2017 | 11:24 CET | News
The last requirement for abolishing mobile roaming fees in the EU has been met with the adoption by the Council of the legal act capping wholesale roaming prices. The Council approval is the last step after the European Parliament gave the green-light to the wholesale regulation in early April. The text will be signed by both institutions in mid-May and published in the EU Official Journal by the end of May. It will then enter into force three days after its publication.
