Fastweb authorised to apply EU roaming surcharges until December

Monday 2 August 2021 | 10:44 CET | News
Italian communications regulator Agcom has approved a request from Fastweb to continue to opt out of the roam-like-at-home requirement in the EU after proving that it will not be able to cover the corresponding roaming costs. Under the EU regulation, operators can opt out of roam-like-at-home and continue to apply regulated surcharges if they can prove to their national watchdog that they will lose money if forced to apply the measure.
