New SMS prices from October

 

EU telecommunications commissary, Viviane Reding, recently announced a plan to slash SMS prices in EU roaming. Not so long ago EU decided on a similar move in regulation of EU roaming phone calls and set a fixed maximum fee to be charged by operators.

This initiative was brought about by some serious SMS price variations set by GSM operators in European countries. For instance, a person from Belgium will pay 80 euro cents for one SMS in EU roaming whereas a person from Spain will pay 63 cents.

The intention of the EU telecommunications commissary is to knock down EU SMS roaming prices for EU citizens to about 12 euro cents.
