The end of roaming surcharge in Europe has been in place for more than a year now allowing the industry, policy makers and external observers to assess the impact the new rules have had on telecommunications markets, and on MVNOs in particular.
As the European Commission is due to submit a report assessing the effects of roam-like-at-home rules soon and, if necessary, submit a legislative proposal reviewing the level of wholesale roaming caps (set in Regulation (EU) 2017/920) by the end of 2019, it is of utmost importance to thoroughly examine the situation in order to ensure fair competition on European telecommunication markets so that citizens continue benefiting from innovative services at affordable prices.
To do so, this informal workshop will host representatives of MNOs, MVNOs and regulators who will exchange on:
The effects RLAH rules have had on operators over the last year.
How operators adapted themselves to the introduction of RLAH.
The current limits of the RLAH regulation and the potential solutions.
The implication of the development of 5G for operators when it comes to roaming practices.
