Lycamobile Belgium fined over roaming pricing

Tuesday 5 December 2017 | 09:50 CET | News
Belgian regulator BIPT has fined MVNO Lycamobile EUR 25,000 for violating roaming regulations. The regulator found that the mobile provider was undermining the 'roam like at home' rules in the EU by charging much more for prepaid bundles that include EU roaming. This made the plans unattractive for domestic use, pushing customers towards the plans without roaming.
