EU ROAMING REGULATION 2007-2017 2017-09-20T17:09:19+00:00


European Union roaming regulations (sometimes called the Eurotariff) regulate the imposition of roaming charges within the European Union. They regulate both the charges a mobile network operator can impose on its subscribers for using telephone and data services outside of the network’s member state, and the wholesale rates networks can charge each other to allow their subscribers access to each other’s networks.

Interesting how after 10 years of Roaming Regulation the June 2017 abolition of Roaming has finally brought the end of Roaming charges. Only time will tell if and when Neelie Kroes view of an EU with increased productivity will start to emerge. It seems already that many more EU citizens feel freer than ever before to use roaming.

“Some industry sceptics may say roaming is dead, but infact Roaming in the EU is more alive than ever and the networks, processes and vendors which support it, far more important”.

The History of the EU Roaming Regulation

In this first episode, we recap up on the long history of the EU Roaming Regulation. As you can see from the Price Caps below the Regulation has been progressing for over 10 years. It’s a story of trial-and-error-by-the European commission, in trying to get Roaming pricing down across the 28 EU member states, that has eventually led to the first ever mass abolition of roaming pricing in the world starting in June 2017.
