Orange Poland to apply EU roaming surcharges for pre-paid users

Friday 18 May 2018 | 14:33 CET | News
As a result of the increased roaming costs after the introduction of Roam-Like-At-Home in the EU in mid-June 2017, Orange Poland is introducing roaming surcharges for pre-paid users. The operator, together with its competitors, requested permission from regulator UKE to apply surcharges to compensate for losses from roaming. This possibility is allowed by the EU roaming regulation and applied by regulators in several other EU countries, too. The losses of Polish operators resulting from the cancelling of roaming fees are estimated at PLN 500 million during 2017.
