I have good news on an issue which I have raised numerous times before. I am delighted an agreement has been reached on the abolition of roaming charges between the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council. It is due to come into effect in June 2017. From April 2016 we will have surcharges for roaming capped at 5 cent per minute for calls. There will also be reductions for SMS messages and megabytes. It is a far cry from where we were just a few years ago. In 2010 the charge was €7 per megabyte of data when roaming, 140 times what it will cost in April 2016. It seems extraordinary, looking back. In 2010 a call cost 52 cent per minute, ten times what it will cost in 2016. This is a positive change by the European Union. It still has to be voted on by the European Parliament, but I gather that agreement has been reached. A few months ago it looked as though the measure would be stalled entirely, but it is now likely to come to pass.
