Europe puts end to mobile roaming charges

European flagThe European Parliament voted today to abolish mobile roaming charges in the bloc.

That means that if you go on holiday and use your mobile phone, you won’t come back to an enormous bill from your provider.

People will pay the same rate in Europe.

The EU has fought against high roaming charges for a decade.

The costs of roaming are already set to be cut in April next year, and it won’t be until the middle of 2017 that the roaming charges will be completely abolished.
