Romanian Parliament to question roaming charges

Thursday 6 September 2018 | 08:57 CET | News
The chairman of the IT Commission in Romania's Parliament, Catalin Drula, found that local telecom operators are exploiting a loophole in EU regulation in order to start charging for roaming again, writes local paper Ziarul Financiar. Operators launched a new "subscription class" and pricing options that include roaming services even though they have commercial offers where this service is not available at all, Drula said. Drula said he will approach Ancom to see if operators are charging for roaming legally.
