CUSTOMERS who use mobile phone operators Movistar, Orange or Yoigo will no longer pay roaming charges in EU countries starting June 2017.

This includes pay-as-you-go, contracted and package tariffs when making phone calls.

The move goes a step further than EU regulations, which significantly reduced roaming charges within the bloc.

Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein have also been included in the no extra charge list which will take effect on June 15.

Vodafone offered a roaming charge free service for their contracted service since November 2015, but will extend this to their pay-as-you-go service in June.

The new regulations are the result of 10 years of negotiations to reduce roaming charges, and finally bringing them to an end.
