The Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) has released its 14th report on international roaming on European public mobile telephone networks (roaming). This report presents the results of the 14th compilation of data on roaming, which was conducted between April and September 2014, through national regulatory authorities (NRAs). The document also includes information from previous reports, enabling an assessment of progress.
Data was compiled pursuant to the Regulation on roaming - Regulation (EU) no. 531/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 June 2012 on roaming on public mobile communications networks within the European Union (EU). The Regulation applies to the EU and to Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland (European Economic Area - EEA1), establishing, among other things, maximum caps for regulated roaming tariffs at wholesale and retail level for voice communications, short messaging (SMS) and data services in roaming.
The BEREC study reveals that compliance with the Regulation remains at good levels in all EU Member States.
