It is hoped that a ban on charging for incoming calls will be introduced by July next year.

It has been reported in Expat Forum that the proposals, described as the most ambitious plans in 26 years of telecoms market change, must be approved by 28 EU members and European lawmakers before they can take effect. It is hoped that a ban on charging for incoming calls will be introduced by July next year as well as the cancellation of all other roaming charges by 2016. It means mobile companies will be required to either charge the same amount for calls across the EU or allow their customers to switch providers whilst abroad without having to change their SIM cards.

It comes following recent research from uSwitch which revealed that roaming adds an average £120 a month to a typical monthly bill.

With a strong dedication to the industry, the team take a keen interest in following new updates and developments. A representative from the firm gives their views on the proposals.

“Moving to a brand new country can be daunting and it is often a relief for expats to be able to keep in contact with family and friends via mobile devices, however traditionally this can be expensive. We’re pleased to see that plans are currently in place to bring down the prices for expats using their phones within the EU. We’ll be keeping a close eye on how the movement progresses.”
