Good news for those of you who travel abroad and need web connectivity on-the-go. Under new telecom reforms, the BBC reports this weekend that European Parliament has voted to completely “scrap” roaming charges across Europe.
“Under the wide-ranging telecoms reforms, the cost of making a call or downloading internet data in another EU country will be the same as at home,” the report reads, while adding that “some consumers have faced bills for thousands of pounds after falling foul of current high roaming charges.”
According to the report, a survey issued in February suggested that 94-percent of Europeans currently limit their use of the web when travelling across Europe, “because of the cost of mobile roaming.”
With the vote won by 534 votes to 25, the change is currently scheduled to take place beginning December 2015, and “still requires approval from EU governments” according to the BBC.
