Europeans for Fair Roaming has been instrumental in once again bringing down roaming charges in Europe, as the campaign evaluation done by us over summer has shown.

Over the time of the last two years, the Europeans for Fair Roaming campaign managed to build a network of many thousand citizens, 20 associations and 14 Members of the European Parliament. We took part in all steps of the legislative process for the new EU roaming regulation which came into force in July 2012 and managed to successfully campaign for some important changes to the EU rules on roaming. The campaign was mentioned in TV news on ZDF and Euronews, the New York Times, Die Welt, Newsweek, Daily Telegraph, Salzburger Nachrichten,, EurActiv, ZDNet and more than 70 other sources. The positive and important impact of our work was noted by several key decisions makers.

The introduction of decoupling measures and price caps outside of the EU were important proposals made by us that found their way into the regulation. With our campaigning, we encouraged MEPs and other stakeholders to push for lower prices and strengthened the position of MEPs in the discussions with the Council. Without our campaigning, the same results might not have been possible.
