ANACOM re-launches ''Roaming Light'' campaign
On 1 July, ANACOM is re-launching its information campaign on international roaming, bringing consumers information on the reductions ordered in the pricing of the voice and SMS Eurotariffs and information on a new Eurotariff for data services (Internet and MMS). In the case of data, the Eurotariff is capped at 0.70 euros/MB from 1 July, falling by 35.7% in July 2013, when the tariff will be capped at 0.45 euros/MB, before falling to 0.20 euros/MB in July 2014.
The campaign will also provide information on a range of issues that consumers need to consider, before travelling, when planning to use their mobile phones and access the Internet with roaming while abroad.
The campaign is being re-launched to coincide with the entry into force, on 1 July 2012, of Regulation III on international roaming. Under this Regulation, all mobile operators are required to offer their customers a data Eurotariff, applicable to roaming data communications within the European Economic Area (EEA).
Under the new Regulation, which applies for a period of ten years, the price of intra-EEA roaming tariffs are to be reduced over coming years. In the case of voice communications, the Eurotariff is to fall by 17% to 0.29 euros per minute from 1 July (before a further reduction a year later to 0.24 euros and to 0.19 euros in July 2014). Text messages (SMS), will remain subject to a cap of 0.11 euros from 1 July. This cap will fall by 18% on July 2013 to 0.09 euros (falling to 0.06 euros a year later).
Running until the end of September, the campaign will be focused on the roaminglight.nethttp://www.roaminglight.net/ website, while employing a range of other media, including the general press; airline magazines; banners on travel websites and magazines; ANACOM's website and Consumers' Website; the Spectru newsletter; and e-mail.
MMS - Multimedia Messaging Service: Text, image, animations and sound messages.
Roaming: International Roaming is a service that allows you to use your mobile phone abroad to make or receive voice calls, send or receive data (including SMS, MMS and Internet access) or gain access to other features associated with this type of service. The prices charged for communications in roaming are generally higher than the prices of communications within the national territory. This is because the foreign operator charges your home operator for the use of its network.
