Ciao bella! Euro MPs to scrap mobile roaming charges

Great news if you're someone who uses their phone while abroad: mobile phone roaming charges in the EU are to be scrapped by the middle of 2017 after new rules were formally approved by MEPs.
Consumers will first see a significant cut in the charges from next April, before the full changes take effect from June the following year. It means EU mobile phone users will pay the same price to make calls, send text messages and use data as they would in their home country.
