Mobile data usage in Europe surges after end of roaming charges

European Commission

According to the European Commission's interim results on the effects of the end of roaming charges on 15 June 2017, published on 14 December 2018, the use of mobile data has grown five times on average compared to the levels before June 2017. The number of phone calls made by travellers has roughly doubled compared to the previous period. 

A comprehensive report on the review of the ‘roam like at home’ rules will be published in December 2019. More information can be found on the Commission’s website
