The European Parliament has voted on how to regulate wholesale roaming markets, formally approving the agreement on wholesale caps reached between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission at the beginning of the year. Welcoming the vote, Andrus Ansip, Vice-President for the Digital Single Market said: “As of 15 June 2017 people will be able to switch on mobile services, especially data, without fear of high bills while travelling in the EU. Notwithstanding the final OK from Member States, this agreement on wholesale roaming prices will be the final step to end roaming charges for all travellers in the EU”. From now on, when travelling in the EU, consumers will be able to call, send SMS or surf on their mobile at the same price they pay at home, Caspian Energy News (www.caspianenergy.net) reports with reference to the press statement of the European Commission.
