roaming, Vodafone cuts ahead and other operators lower rates As of June 15, 2017 it will be forbidden to apply any kind of additional cost to the tariff plan when we travel in the twenty-eight EU countries. That's what the situation today Towards the 'roaming zero' The countdown has begun and the operators are already responding. In just over a year the phone operators will have to eliminate all roaming charges. The decision is the European Union and has already a date been set: from 15 June 2017 it will be forbidden to apply any kind of additional cost to our price plan when we travel in the twenty-eight EU countries. All this concerns the calls, text messages and Internet traffic. You not even pay to receive a phone call (so far, has been the most annoying high taxes). It is a long established path. And it went on forced stages: April 30, as we have told: reloading that telephone companies may charge on the domestic level has been lowered from 19 to 5 cents for calls made, from 5 to 1.14 for calls received , from 6 to 2 cents for text messages and from 20 to 5 cents to the Internet. To all this, however, it must be added the VAT. It is still the ceilings and, as agreed, the European Commission, each operator is free to offer the lowest rates. And that is what they are doing Tim, Tre Italy and Wind. In recent weeks they are cutting all tariffs abroad. Vodafone instead chose to anticipate the times and eliminate all roaming charges. The reductions came at the right time: a few months away from summer departures. And it is certainly good news if we are going to spend some 'time in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, United Kingdom, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Austria, Finland, Sweden, Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Croatia.
