EU - Roaming Regulation: Commission welcomes first implementation benchmark report

The first benchmark report on international roaming has been published today by the European Regulators' Group. This report confirms that implementation of the roaming regulation has generally gone smoothly with a high level of compliance in all EU Member States. The European Commission welcomes the findings of this report and urges national regulators to continue monitoring developments so that all European consumers benefit fully from lower roaming charges when making or receiving calls from abroad.
