Newly elected Labour MEP Anneliese Dodds, who represents Banbury as part of the South East Region, delivered the exciting news at our garden party last weekend, that European data roaming charges will be slashed in half from July 1.
Anneliese said, “Labour MEPs have been at the forefront of the drive to cut roaming charges. This is great news ahead of the summer holidays, with people across Europe now able to keep in touch for less.”
Anneliese continued, “We can all now post holiday pics on Facebook and Twitter, without having to worry about a huge bill when we get home.”
“The most people will pay when data roaming within the EU will come down from 37p/MB to 17p/MB from July 1.”
