Telenor Norway scraps roaming fees in EU and EAA

Tuesday 26 April 2016 | 12:25 CET | News
Telenor said it will be scrapping roaming charges in the European Union and European Economic Area (EAA) from 27 April. Customers will be able to ring and text as much as they like, and use the mobile internet allowance included in their bundles, just as they would at home in Norway. This applies both to individual and business customers. The company said 90 percent of roaming by its customers takes place within Europe.
