The European Commission has announced the end of mobile roaming charges within the European Union as of June 15, as revealed in a press release.

Mobile service providers will cap roaming prices at 3.2 cents per minute for calls and 1 cent per SMS, while data prices will be reduced over a period of five years from €7.7 per GB as of 15 June 2017 to €2.5 per GB as of 1 January 2022.

Vice-President for the Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip said in the press release:

“As of 15 June, Europeans will be able to travel in the EU without roaming charges. We have also made sure that operators can continue competing to provide the most attractive offers to their home markets.”
