Neelie Kroes calls for an end to mobile roaming charges in Europe

Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda, has called on European MPs to end mobile roaming charges.

In a statement, she said “I want you to be able to go back to your constituents and say that you were able to end mobile roaming costs. I want you to be able to say that you saved their right to access the open internet, by guaranteeing net neutrality. I want you to be able to say we took real action on cybercrime and other threats.”

She hopes an agreement could be in place for Easter 2014.

“Telecoms touches everything”, she said “and users are developing massive expectations of it. Markets must function, devices must function, networks must function and investment needs to happen. We can't afford today's countless, needless, artificial obstacles placed in the way.”
