EC confirms roaming fair-use rules, to take effect in Jan

Thursday 15 December 2016 | 13:31 CET | News
The European Commission has published the roaming implementing regulation covering the fair-use rules for when roaming surcharges end in June 2017. The regulation will be published in the EU's official gazette on 17 December and come into effect 20 days later. The text outlines when mobile operators may impose additional charges for roaming, either if the customer is abusing the 'fair use'of roam-like-home rates, or if the operator cannot cover its costs when offering roam-like-home rates.
