Report published by the European Commission on 29 November 2019, comprising the first full review of the roaming market following the end of the roaming charges for those travelling within the European Union (EU).

Further information:

Regulation (EU) 2015/2120 mandated the end of retail roaming charges in the EU from 15 June 2017, subject to fair use policy and a sustainability derogation. These roaming rules became widely known asĀ Roam-Like-At-Home (RLAH).

The European Commission engaged in a full review of the impact of these rules in the roaming market. The Report concludes that the competition dynamics in the roaming market are not likely to change in the near future, which means that the existing retail and wholesale regulation is still necessary. The current rules for roaming should continue to apply in the forthcoming years to ensure that citizens can benefit from roaming at no additional cost within the EU.

The review follows up and confirms the findings of an interim report published in December 2018.
