EU - Roaming : Commission welcomes political agreement in Telecom Council

(RAPID)
On 7 June 2007, the Council has adopted politically the European Commission's proposal for an EU Roaming Regulation to bring down mobile roaming charges by up to 70%. The EU Regulation will, as from this summer, enable consumers to benefit from a "Eurotariff" which sets a maximum limit for calls made and received. These price caps will be further reduced in 2008 and 2009.
