Fastweb, Welcome Italia permitted to continue charging EU roaming surcharges

Tuesday 23 July 2019 | 08:48 CET | News
Italian communications regulator Agcom has given its approval to requests from MVNOs Fastweb Mobile and Welcome Italia to continue to opt out of the roam-like-at-home requirement in the EU over a period of 12 months on grounds that it won't 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.
