EU to get rid of roaming charges across Europe in 2014

If you travel a lot, you must wish that roaming charges wouldn’t run your phone bill so high. In 2014, your wish may just come true. A report is saying that the EU will be getting rid of roaming charges across Europe. This would mean not having to worry about calling, messaging, or browsing the web on your Samsung Galaxy S4 (to get more info on the Samsung Galaxy S4 click here) or Apple iPhone 5 (to get more info on the Apple iPhone 5 click here) while in another European country (to see related news click here).EU_Flag

The report comes from The Telegraph (to see original report click here). According to the paper’s source, “They agreed that this time next year we will have got rid of these charges.”

The source added, “There are around 100 operators in Europe and only four in the US. That’s not sustainable if we’re going to have a single market and investment. Europe has less 4G mobile broadband than Africa at the moment.

“Consolidation is not the aim. The aim is a single market, but if it means we get fewer, stronger operators, that’s good.”
