Mobile Roaming costs

EU mobile roaming costs are to fall substantially – hopefully the last regulation in this field.

From 1 July on, the tariffs for mobile roaming costs  within the European Union will substantially decrease in the next two years. Liberals and Democrats in the European Parliament are generally satisfied with this and other results of todays plenary vote on the future of roaming for both the wholesale and the retail sector. The vote sealed the trilogue agreement settled between Commission, Council and Parliament in late March.

Probably the most significant step forward for consumers in this Roaming 3 regulation is the low cap on the roaming costs for data – from no caps on the costs per Megabyte so far to 0.70 EUR on 1 July this year and 0.20 EUR in 2014.

Adina VALEAN (Romania, PNL), who is the ALDE rapporteur on Roaming 3 and who was the EP rapporteur on Roaming 2, said after the final negotiation: “I welcome the agreement as we will continue to drag themobile roaming costs down. By introducing the structural measures allowing for decoupling the roaming services from the domestic services, competition in roaming prices should increase. This will hopefully provide customers with better services at a lower price, but without price intervention and in a market-based approach.”

Jens ROHDE (Denmark, Venstre) who is the ALDE coordinator at the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, added: “Of course as liberals we can always ask ourselves why we continue to regulate prices. But we need to keep the history in mind. The first roaming regulation was a result of a strong suspicion of price cartels but with insufficient proof we had to approach it the other way around. This lack of competition and excessive prices continues to be a problem. Therefore, the regulation will introduce both lower maximum tariffs and structural measures to increase competition. In general, we hope the new competition elements will make further price regulation obsolete in the future.”
