There will be no roaming charges in the Western Balkans in two years’ time, while charges towards the EU will be much lower, Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) Secretary-General Majlinda Bregu said Tuesday.
“This was not given to us, but we worked hard to get here – hard and fast!” Bregu noted in a statement published on the RCC website.
“Less than 3 months ago, the region committed itself to and signed the agreement leading the Western Balkans to the Roaming Free Zone, alike the European Union’s Roam Like At Home. Yesterday (when implementation of the first phase began) it became a reality – meaning our citizens will speak, surf, SMS more and pay less, and in two years’ time there will be no roaming costs when roaming within the region, and much lower costs towards the EU.”
“EU is a magnetic attraction, while regional cooperation is becoming a steady pattern,” Bregu noted.
