Hope their plan this time works and not an experiment like what they did to us in Cyprus (economy, haircut etc.).
Well you see there you have elected officials who understand that they work for the people.
In the United States, elected officials are whores for the highest bidder. Or rather I should say Brothel owners, and the people are the whores they sell.
I india they have passed law for "Free Roaming" in OCT 2012 and all have been approved. Still not yet implemented by Carriers :(. I don't know how long it takes.
I wouldn't exactly compare that with the USA.
In my mind US/EU/canada/etc roaming fees should also be waived. Imagine having to pay because you're loading a website from another country, or skyping to someone in another country? Same thing.

Three does a £5 euro internet pass (unlimited) and allows normal usage in countries where they have coverage.
Prices of subscritptions will most likely go up.
And keep in mind that calling another country in EU, is not roaming, so you still cant get a subscription from another EU member state.
It didnt say in the article if they will stop service providers from blocking VoiceOverIP-calling, that is at the moment the biggest threat to net neutrality in Europe.
It speaks volumes about the EU when scrapping roaming charges is its highlight.
Better off out. Give the UK a referendum.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2014I don't understand?He mean that plans will be more expensive, and he is right. Everyone will contribute to pay the phonebill of frequent roamers, whom usually have their company pay their bill anyway. Doesnt seem right.
It sounds really great, but I fear that it will mean an increase at our rates. Currently I can have e.g. unlimited talk, mms and ssm and 30Gb of data for just above £20 in Denmark. And If I can do with less, I can easily find plans to half that, e.g. 10h talk, 3Gb data and unlimited sms and mms,
I think it's genious and hope this will get through! Would be even better if UK were included!
It will just mean carriers will up their prices to cover the changes imposed by EU. We will all have a higher bill in the future. I don't travel much in Europe except for the odd visit once every few years.
Get a Pay As You Go SIM in the country your visiting. Saves all this nonsense. Brits don't see themselves as Europeans anyway...
Say goodbye to your cheap plans Europe. So sick of the British rubbing their low prices in my face. Of course if they traveled 13 miles across the channel they paid 40 cents a minute.. but I digress.
