O2 Slovakia applies to RU for roam-like-home exemption

Wednesday 31 May 2017 | 09:59 CET | News
O2 Slovakia has applied for an exemption from the EU roam-like-home regulation to national watchdog RU, reported MobilMania.sk. The operator said it is analysing the possibilities of the EU regulation and it is not clear yet whether it would apply roaming surcharges or for which services even after 15 June, even if the RU theoretically granted approval. The EU regulation assumes the possibility for operators to ask national regulators for exceptions with regard to the sustainability of domestic rates, if applying the new rules causes revenue to decrease by 3 percent or more.
