With a proposed addition in the roaminglagstiftningen to the EU-commission to have a volymtak for data usage.

the EUROPEAN commission proposed on Thursday an addition to the EU's roaminglagstiftning to protect the nordic-baltic telecom operators from excessive costs.

– To use roaming as if you were at home, not raising the domestic prices or restrict data usage at home, said commission vice-president for the digital single market Andrus Ansip at a press conference.

On 2 december the EU countries agreed on a gradually declining ceiling for wholesale prices for data roaming within the EU 2017-2021.

Sweden's digitaliseringsminister Peter Eriksson complained then that the risk is to Swedish and other north european telecom operators suffer losses.

Southern european EU-countries will in practice be able to raise wholesale prices, while the ministry of telecom operators cannot charge roaming charges for northern european retail roaming in sydländer, he said.
