Lower roaming tariffs in the EU

Adelina Marini, July 1, 2009

After numerous changes, delays, fights, lobbyists crashes, as of today the latest much cheaper tariffs for roaming within the EU come into force. Thus, a roamed call in another EU country must not cost more than €0.43 per minute, and no more than €0.19 to receive a call. The text messages also fell significantly and now their price should not exceed €0,11. The drop is from €0,28. Relatively cheap remains the data transfer through a mobile network - €1 per MB. It's good for you to know, though, that these prices are with VAT excluded.
