Price of mobile phone calls into other EU countries halved

15-05-2019

A European Commission directive which defines the maximum costs of mobile phone calls and texts into other EU states went into effect on Wednesday. The directive has forced Czech telecom operators to lower their prices by about a half to CZK 5,80 per minute, with some operators taking their prices even lower.

The price limits are a continuation of the EC’s 2017 policy to end roaming charges and is a part of the union’s revision of telecommunications regulation.
