Italian communications regulator Agcom has given its approval to a request from MVNO PosteMobile to opt out of the roam-like-at-home requirement in the EU on grounds of economic viability. The operator will be allowed to continue applying surcharges for roaming throughout the continent over a period of 12 months after it successfully argued that it couldn’t recover the costs incurred for the provision of roaming services.
In the resolution of the Communications Guarantee Authority, it is stated:
The company PosteMobile S.p.A. is authorized, for a period of twelve months from the publication of this measure on the Authority’s website, to charge a roaming charge in accordance with the maximum values given hereafter.

PosteMobile has been implementing Roaming Like At Home since last June, and has decided to apply some limitations to its offerings that include data packets over 1 GB. If you are going abroad (in the 31 new countries), based on the active offer on your PosteMobile SIM, you should always remember to check out how many Giga can really use in roaming.
AGCOM, in the resolution issued yesterday, also reports PosteMobile’s obligations to its customers in one of the countries where RLAH is applicable, which should be informed promptly of the extra charges applied by sending a Custom SMS.
PosteMobile is committed to “providing adequate information through its website and through the usual communication channels and to update users without any delay about any subsequent variations in the rates applied”.[amazon_link asins=’B01BBO7A9C,B01NBHMLOS,B01FTNANIQ,B01HQ16WS4,B013LKL5IQ,B01LDNWIG6,B06XBYMX58,B074ZZ12ZX’ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’alert0b-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’975e682d-cb78-11e7-a407-13d56c43b288′]
