15 June: roaming charges end in the EU

Roaming charges in the European Union will no longer apply from 15 June 2017. The end of roaming charges is a true European success story. From now on, citizens who travel within the EU will be able to call, text and connect on their mobile devices at the same price as they pay at home. Removing roaming charges is one of the greatest and most tangible successes of the EU.
