No roaming fees next year (* as long as you don't roam much)

From CIO

"There'll be no more roaming fees for European Union mobile phone subscribers next June – as long as they don't roam for too long.

The European Commission announced with great fanfare last year that it would entirely abolish the surcharges for using a mobile phone network outside the subscriber's home country from June 2017. It had been steadily ratcheting down the cost of roaming in recent years.

The move prompted an outcry from network operators in low-cost countries worried about the possibility of arbitrage. They were concerned that people would profit from price differences by taking out cheaper subscriptions in other countries, becoming permanent roamers. The result would have been to bring costs down in some EU countries, but push them up in others.

Now the Commission has revealed its plan to prevent such arbitrage, by setting ‘fair use’ policies for roaming.”
