Kerry MEP welcomes removal of final barrier to free roaming

Kerry MEP Seán Kelly is welcoming the removal of mobile phone roaming charges.

MEPS took a vote on it yesterday in the European Parliament, removing the last hurdle on the way to full abolition of roaming charges.

From the 15th of June, consumers will be able to call, text and use mobile data for the same cost at home while travelling in another EU country.

Ireland South Fine Gael MEP Seán Kelly says this is welcome news.
