The average use of mobile data roaming has quadrupled in one year at Scarlet!

Tomorrow, the new European legislation enters into force which aims to abolish roaming charges in the European Union. Scarlet already abolished its roaming charges in the European Union in May 2016, one year ahead of all other Belgian operators. For one year, therefore, its customers have already been using the calls, texts and data included in their subscription throughout the European Union at no extra charge.

Here are the findings from this year of free roaming in the European Union

Good news for Scarlet customers

Last year Scarlet decided to introduce a safeguard with an annual limit fixed at 45 days of free roaming per year. Only a few customers found themselves in this situation but these are mainly customers living near the French, Dutch, Luxembourgish or German border. Scarlet has decided not to apply any surcharges to these customers, leaving them to benefit fully from their subscription no matter where they are.

But that's not all; on 15 June this contractual limit will be scrapped and no other specific limit will be introduced in its place (the use of roaming is reserved for reasonable use only in the sense of the European regulation).
