Is the roaming agreement just among the five Eastern partner countries? Is there any chance it might be extended to the EU as well?
Yes, the regional roaming agreement that EU4Digital is facilitating will be just among the five Eastern partner countries. However, the EU and Eastern partner government ministers have agreed to explore the possibility of a common international roaming space, including the economically sustainable reduction of roaming tariffs between the Eastern partner countries and the EU Member States. For instance, in May 2023 telecom operators from Moldova and the European Union signed a joint declaration to lower roaming charges for businesses and citizens travelling between the two areas. Previously, in April 2022, European and Ukrainian operators signed an agreement to provide affordable or free roaming and international calls to help Ukrainian refugees stay connected. That agreement was extended for another year in July 2023.
