Slovak regulator RU's chairman, Vladimir Kesjar, visited Brussels from 26 - 27 May to meet with the European Commission's representatives on the commission's draft Telecommunications Package legislation. When the package is adopted by the European Parliament and the Council, it will lead to the cancellation of roaming surcharges within the EU, as well as to net neutrality in internet provision. Kesjar supported the proposals but at the same time, stressed that when cancelling roaming fees, it was necessary to avoid a negative pressure on the prices of domestic services.
