Following a vote yesterday in the EU parliament in Brussels travellers can look forward to cheaper mobile roaming charges within the EU. Neelie Kroes MEP (Vice President of the European Commission, responsible for the Digital Agenda) announced that the European commission will limit the cost of using one megabyte of data to 70 cents. This will eventually fall to 20 cents by July 2014 (which is cheaper then some domestic charges for data currently on offer). Hopefully we can look forward to hearing less and less about bill shock. These new rules will come in from 2012. We’ll wait to see how the networks deal with these new rules.
