Roaming is not a call abroad


International roaming, starting June 15, 2017, fundamentally changed the form. Mobile customers from the European Union and the states of Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein can use data services, send SMS messages and call home or other Member States at the same roaming prices as the home roaming (roaming like at home) provided they do not abuse this benefit.

The rules that significantly reduced calls from holidays or business travel have been set by the European Commission in the Roaming Regulation (EU) 2015/2120 amending Regulation (EU) 531/2012, on roaming on public mobile communications networks within the EU.

The international roaming regulation does not apply to calling abroad, when a SIM card is registered in a home network and the called number belongs to an operator from abroad no matter where it is at any given moment. More information about international calls and SMS you can fing here.

Price regulation does not apply to roaming from non-EU countries. These prices are also set by operators based on their business decision.

What type of call it is, it summarizes infographics, processed from the perspective of outgoing calls (in the direction of the arrow).
