Commission proposes new Regulation to ensure EU travellers continue to benefit from free roaming

To ensure that citizens can continue to enjoy roaming without additional charges when travelling in the EU, the Commission has proposed a new Roaming Regulation. At a time when non-essential travel is discouraged, this is an important action in preparing a brighter future. The new regulation will prolong the current rules that are due to expire in 2022, for another 10 years.

The Commission is proposing a new Roaming Regulation aimed at extending the rules for 10 years and enhancing its benefits for the citizens.
