Italy's PosteMobile allowed to opt out of free EU roaming

Friday 17 November 2017 | 09:32 CET | News
Italian communications regulator Agcom has given its approval to a request from MVNO PosteMobile to opt out of the roam-like-at-home requirement in the EU on grounds of economic viability. The operator will be allowed to continue applying surcharges for roaming throughout the continent over a period of 12 months after it successfully argued that it couldn't recover the costs incurred for the provision of roaming services.
