eu-flagBRUSSELS, Belgium– A law that proposes to cut the roaming charges for users traveling inside the countries of the European Union has been passed by parliament this week, and will be effective starting July 1st.  

Users with plans with a carrier in one of the countries of the EU will not be charged data, text, or voice roaming charges when travelling to other EU countries. 

Viviane Reding, Telecoms Commisionate for the EU, said that SMS text messages could drop in price by 60%.

For the users and subsribers who travel inside the EU, this law is good news, but there is a fear that carriers will answer to this law by raising the domestic prices of plans, in order to counterbalance the lost roaming charges.
