[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!

FairRoaming answers to consultation on roaming decoupling

In reaction to the new EU roaming regulation that was demanded and supported by us, the European telecom regulation agency BEREC started a consultation in July about the technical implementation of some of the new rules. One of the aspects BEREC is currently researching is how the “decoupling” process will work. From 2014 on, this decoupling will allow mobile phone users to shop around and change their operator when abroad. This will create a real market where competition will drive down the prices for roaming even more. We are working to ensure that this will be as simple and transparent as possible for the end users.

We therefore today presented our answer to the consultation to BEREC. You may download the full document here: FairRoaming – Decoupling Consultation – August 2012
