The European Commission has launched a public consultation to gather views on technical measures related to the end of roaming charges in the EU. The EU has recently agreed that as of mid-June 2017, Europeans will pay the same price to use their mobile devices when travelling in the EU as they do at home. For this important change to happen, the Commission has to take technical measures, such as a review of wholesale markets (i.e. the prices that operators charge each other for the use of their networks) and defining a “fair-use safeguard”. The aim of this safeguard is to avoid abusive practices (such as “permanent roaming”) that could have a negative impact on domestic prices, and ultimately on consumers. The public consultation will run until 18 February 2016. Creating the right conditions for digital networks and services to flourish is a key objective of the Commission Digital Single Market plan.
