Steady reduction and disappearance of roaming charges

Over the last 10 years, the EU has forced operators to reduce roaming costs steadily, by introducing four consumer-friendly roaming regulations that have decreased mobile roaming charges for consumers by 92 %.
• First, in 2007, calls became cheaper.
• In 2009, the price of calls and also text messages was further reduced.
• In 2012, the price of calls, texts and also data decreased.
• In 2015, finally, a decision was made on the two-phase abolition of roaming charges: i) an initial phase from 30 April 2016, reducing roaming charges still further for calls, texts and data, and ii) a second phase, abolishing intra-EU roaming charges completely from 15 June 2017.
