International Roaming

The roaming regulation introducing regulated prices for international roaming services and transparency requirements will be revised for the third time. The Commission is proposing new additional measures, focusing on making the market more competitive for instance by introducing mandatory wholesale access, service unbundling so that customers can buy roaming services from their normal operator. The discussions between the Commission, the Council and the Parliament are now reaching a final phase. The new regulation should enter into force on the 1st July 2012.
