*Cheaper roaming services for consumers in the EU...*


What is international roaming?

When you travel to a foreign country, your mobile phone keeps working: you are roaming. You can make & receive mobile phone calls, write text messages (SMS) or surf the internet and download content. Your calls, SMS and other data services are operated by a foreign network because your home provider does not normally operate in that country. For providing this service, the foreign network operator charges your home operator and your home operator passes this additional cost on to you.

More transparency and cheaper roaming prices for EU citizens :

In July 2009, revised rules were adopted that cut voice calls roaming prices further and introduced new caps on SMS tariffs ("Euro SMS tariff"). In addition, as of 1 July 2010, consumers are protected by an automatic safeguard against data roaming bill shocks. The new
