EU Caps Mobile Roaming Fees

European mobile phone operators are now required by the European Union to offer their customers limits on roaming fees.

Under the new regulation, mobile operators must offer their customers a monthly cut-off limit of 50 euros ($65) while they are surfing the Internet in other European nations. They can also offer their customers any other limit. Mobile users will now receive a warning when they hit 80 percent of the chosen limit.

The European Union Telecoms Commissioner Viviane Reding has supported reducing the price of sending a mobile text message from one EU country to another by 16 cents.

Reding’s proposal is now being distributed to all other EU Commissioners before they formally implement it in early October. The EU’s 27 member states and the European Parliament must also approve the measure.
