DNA’s customers can now use their mobile phones without worries throughout the European Union. From 15 June 2017 onwards, roaming calls and messages in the EU will be billed at the domestic rate and the unit price of data will fall by more than 90%. In June 2017 DNA will also launch new subscriptions which include EU roaming data in the monthly fee.
Despite the falling EU-roaming prices, no price increases will be introduced in domestic prices for existing customers.

EU roaming pricing changes for existing subscriptions
Starting 15. June, EU-roaming data will be billed with EU-baseline tariff of 0,57 eurocents per megabyte (5,7€/Gt). EU-roaming minutes, texts and multimedia messages will be billed with domestic rate only, without additional fees. Receiving calls will be completely free.
The new EU pricing scheme is valid within fair usage limits and for periodic roaming. EU-roaming is considered periodic as long as domestic usage surpasses EU-roaming usage. Subscription specific fair usage limits will be introduced for EU-roaming data.
