Roaming charges in the European Union will no longer apply from 15 June 2017. The end of roaming charges is a true European success story. From now on, citizens who travel within the EU will be able to call, text and connect on their mobile devices at the same price as they pay at home. Removing roaming charges is one of the greatest and most tangible successes of the EU.
The President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani, the Prime Minister of Malta Joseph Muscat, on behalf of the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, on the 14 June 2017 issued a joint statement to announce that roaming charges within the European Union will no longer apply.
