The EU intends to be a “super state” – in a super state, however, citizens can expect to pay no roaming fees when traveling from one substate to another (similar to the USA).
Sadly, the EU currently has not yet achieved this state. However, it remains work in progress. The Independent now repors the following:
Mobile phone roaming charges will fall again from July following a European Parliament vote today.
The cuts involve reducing the cost of making a mobile call from another EU country from about 30p a minute to 24p, while the cost of sending a text drops to just 7p. Overall, roaming costs have fallen by up to 75% since the campaign began in 2007, said the commission.
Stay tuned for further info as we get it!
