RCS & RDS applies for roaming derogation

Friday 16 June 2017 | 09:49 CET | News
Romanian operator RCS & RDS has asked for a derogation from the EU's 'roam like home' regulations, the regulator Ancom announced. In a statement announcing the roaming changes from 15 June, Ancom said it was considering the request from RCS & RDS. If approved, the mobile provider could still add surcharges for roaming on top of domestic prices. This is the so-called sustainability mechanism in the roaming regulation, for operators that can show they would lose money if forced to charge RLAH rates.
