Ficora lets 4 Finnish operators apply EU roaming surcharges

Friday 16 June 2017 | 12:26 CET | News
Finnish telecoms regulator Ficora said it has granted DNA, Elisa, Moi Mobiili and Telia authorisation to apply surcharges to their customers' roaming consumption in the EU and EEA countries. The operators themselves decide whether they will apply the surcharges in full, in part or at all. In any case, it will be significantly cheaper to use a mobile phone in Europe since the new EU roaming regulations entered force on 15 June, it said.
