Italy's Wind to start 'roam like home' in EU from 24 April

Monday 17 April 2017 | 08:36 CET | News
Italian operator Wind has officially confirmed that it will begin offering 'roam like home' in the European Union on 24 April, nearly two months before the new EU roaming rules go into effect on 15 June. In a brief statement, Wind said it will become the first operator in Italy to end surcharges for all customers travelling throughout the continent, allowing them to consult maps, upload photos on social media, make phone calls and send messages for the same price as they do when at home, offering major advantages in terms of convenience and simplicity.
