EU Roaming, European Roam Costs, Europe Cellular Service

EU governments, at a meeting in Brussels, have agreed upon new EU roaming regulation that was passed by the European Parliament three weeks ago.

This marks a big success for the citizen-led Europeans for Fair Roaming campaign, which unites 20 association (including both Tru and TruTower), 14 members of the European Parliament, and 150,000 people behind lower roaming charges in Europe.

“This means that the new EU roaming rules will now come in force on July 1, just in time for the summer holidays,” said campaign coordinator, Bengt Beier. “We are glad governments accepted the new regulation just as the Parliament did on May 10. The new rules are a step forward for consumer protection. But it will take another two years until we will know for sure whether prices will really drop. The EU should now look towards two other nuisances for mobile users: the high prices for worldwide roaming and international calls from home to other European states. Because those things are not covered by the roaming regulation.”

What this means? Lower costs for global SIM users who are roaming in Europe in the future, which could lead to those elusvie Truphone bundles as well!
