Uruguay ratifies Mercosur roaming agreement

Monday 24 August 2020 | 11:32 CET | News
Uruguay has become the first Mercosur member country to formally ratify in parliament the agreement reached last year to formally end roaming charges, reports Telesemana. The deal was signed in July 2019 by the government heads of Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina. Once approved by the remaining parliaments, over 185 million mobile users in the bloc will no longer be required to pay extra when roaming in another Mercosur country.
