EU parliament committee adopts lower wholesale roaming rates

Tuesday 29 November 2016 | 10:46 CET | News
The European Parliament's Committee on Industry, Research and Energy has adopted a proposal setting wholesale roaming rates lower than the prices proposed by the European Commission and EU member states. The committee approved the proposal from rapporteur and Finnish MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri to cap wholesale prices at EUR 0.03 per minute and EUR 4 per GB from 15 June 2017, when roaming surcharges are set to end in the EU. This is below the EUR 0.04 per minute and EUR 0.0085 per MB (EUR 8.5 per GB) proposed by the European Commission and the EUR 10 per GB agreed by EU member states.
