Roaming Zero, what changes from January 1, 2018

From January 1, 2018, the new tariffs for buying data traffic abroad have come into force: from 7.7 euros, they change to 6 euros per GB

On June 15, 2017, the new rules for Roaming Zero in Europe came into force. Thanks to the decrease in costs, every user can practically use their phone subscription even abroad. Although with some limitations, in order to avoid abuse.

The Roaming Like at Home regulation provides that the user can use unlimited minutes and SMS (depends on his subscription), but the same does not apply to Internet traffic data. In this case there are limitations: the formula provided by Roaming Zero says that you can use twice as many gigabytes as you can buy with your phone credit or with the cost of your subscription (excluding VAT - each gigabyte costs 7.7 euros). Until December 31, 2017 if you spent 15 euros you had just over 3 gigabytes available, from January 1, 2018 thanks to the decrease in costs provided by the European Regulation will increase the data traffic available to users

The new rules of Roaming Like at Home

In the first six months of application of Roaming Zero, each gigabyte of data traffic purchased abroad had a cost of 7.7 euros. From January 1, 2018, each gigabyte will cost 6 euros and this will allow users to increase the threshold of data traffic they can use abroad. From the current 3 gigabytes, it will be possible to reach almost 4GB (in case the monthly subscription is 15 euros). This rate will be applied throughout 2018, while on January 1, 2019 it will decrease to 4.5 euros. In fact, the European Union Regulation provides for a constant decrease until it reaches 2.5 euros on January 1, 2022. The aim is to make it as cheap as possible to call and surf the Internet even outside the borders of one's own country. No change with regard to calls and SMS: if the subscription provides unlimited minutes, they will continue to be unlimited.
