[Updated with report] EESC organises consultation and hearing on the new EU roaming proposals

eesc-euroamingReacting to the new and widely discussed proposal of the European Commission to create a single telecom market, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is organising a public consultation on roaming, asking “What would abolishing EU roaming charges change for you”. The chairman of the EESC is one of the key supporters of the proposal to remove roaming charges.

This public consultation is giving you the chance to say what you think about:

  • Abolishing EU roaming charges
  • The future of mobile communications in the EU
  • What this all means for you
  • What Europe should now do.

Please take part in the consultation and make sure your voice is heard in Europe: http://www.eesc.europa.eu/?i=portal.en.take-part-roaming

Mark the date

The results of the consultation will be presented in a public hearing on Wednesday, October 23 2013, at the EESC in Brussels!
