It took little more than a month and a half after the entry into force of the free roaming legislation in the European Union, an epochal turning point that has sparked the way the smartphone is used outside the national borders. As always, however, the European directives have not been transposed in the same way by all, and AGCOM has had to deal with some ears of ears.
The Authority has also granted a derogation to some virtual operators, as provided by the same European legislation. These are Fastweb Mobile, Digi Mobil and TiscaliMobile, which can charge a roaming charge over the next twelve months.
While Wind and Three offer the opportunity to use the entire national bundle even abroad, or almost, Vodafone and TIM do not do the same, and are being investigated in depth, especially regarding free promotions. Lycamobile is also in the gaze of the guarantor, who would not apply to roaming services under the same terms as Italy.
The ball passes now to the operators who will have to communicate the initiatives they intend to adopt to comply with European standards.
