It is one of the European Commission’s prestige projects. Hardly any other measure so clearly demonstrates how Europe is growing closer together, as the abolition of roaming fees for mobile phone users.
Europeans will be able to phone or surf the Internet without paying any extra, even as they cross borders into other European nations.
For years politicians argued over the idea and it took until 2015 to come up with a plan. That plan now says that from June 15, 2017, E.U. citizens will no longer have to pay additional charges when they use their mobile phones anywhere inside the European Union.
