BELTUG Tariff alert: Digital Agenda: lower roaming prices as of 1st July


Tariff alert - With effect from 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012 EU mobile operators will again be obliged to lower retail prices for roaming calls in line with EU rules first introduced in 2007 and amended in 2009. This is the last in the series of regulated price cuts under the current EU Roaming Regulation, which expires end June 2012:

  • Consumers opting for the EU-regulated "Eurotariff" will pay no more than 35 cents per minute for calls made and 11 cents per minute for calls received while abroad in the EU.
  • Roamed voice mail messages should be free of charge.
  • The cap for data roaming wholesale prices (the price which operators charge each other) will fall to 50 cents per MegaByte (down from 80 cents per MB).

Want to share this info with your colleagues abroad? This info can be found on the website of the European Commission in all EU-zone languages.

Via INTUG, BELTUG is closely involved in the European roaming debate. We are also advocating actions on a larger scale, via OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the ITU (United Nations International Telecommunications Union).

BELTUG will continue to monitor possible problems and solutions.

At your service, 


Yours sincerely,
