Euro Roaming Tariff into law by the weekend?

Ruled not to be uncompetitive

The much-awaited Euro Tariff cap for mobile phone roaming took one more step towards becoming law today, with approval from the EU ministers in charge of competitiveness.

With the measure already formally approved by the member states, approval by the competitive ministers was just a formality; but one that means the measures should pass in to EU law by the weekend.

It's still not going to be implemented by operators in time for the summer, but anyone planning an autumn break around Europe should be able to take advantage of the capped rates, and be better informed about other roaming charges too.®
