The European parliament has decided to oblige the telecom operators to drop the mobile roaming charges, which are relatively big compared to the regular prices, starting with 2017. After 2017, performing a call, sending a SMS or performing internet activities while abroad, will not be more expansive than it would be if the user was in its main country. Today, sending SMS messages, performing phone calls (calling or receiving calls) and navigating on the internet via roaming is very expensive, so the users usually prefer to stay on the hotel Wi-Fi while abroad, and use internet services like Skype, Viber or WhatsApp.
