One more telecom operator signs the Roaming Declaration - one step closer to roaming prices reduction between EU and Western Balkans
Brussels/Sarajevo - United Group, one of the largest telecommunications and media operators in the South East Europe including Nova, Total TV, Telemach, SBB and more regional telecommunication platforms, signed the European Union (EU)-Western Balkans (WB) Roaming Declaration at a meeting of telecommunications operators from EU and WB in Brussels today organised by the European Commission and the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), thus joining the initiative that will bring the reduction of data roaming charges between the EU and the Western Balkans as of 1 October 2023.
“I am glad to see more telecommunications operators joining the Roaming Declaration between the EU and WB, as this initiative we are powering through with the European Commission is something that will bring real tangible benefits for the citizens of our region, but EU citizens as well. We are working tirelessly to see even more telecom operators joining this effort. There is a lot of work ahead of us still, but I’m looking forward to this October,” said RCC Secretary General Majlinda Bregu.
Continuing the success of Roam Like at Home regimes in EU and Western Balkans, EU and WB telecommunications operators signed the Roaming Declaration at the EU-WB Summit held in Tirana in December last year, thus enabling the reduction of data roaming charges between the EU and the Western Balkans as of 1 October 2023. This Declaration is the result of strong engagement of the EU and WB telecommunications operators and the support of the European Commission, Regional Cooperation Council, as well as region’s authorities and is in line with the Common Regional Market Action Plan.
