Abolition of roaming charges in the EU

On 9 July, the Minister wrote a letter to the Committee outlining the process through which this agreement was reached and the next steps.

On 21 July 2015, the EU Internal Market Sub-Committee responded with a letter to the Minister requesting further information on:

  • Whether the abolition of roaming charges will cost consumers, and if so, what the Government estimates that cost to be;
  • The extent to which roaming might be limited by a “fair use” clause.

The Committee also set out its views regarding the agreement reached on Net Neutrality, which requires new online child protection legislation to be introduced in the UK.
