Mobile roaming fees will be scrapped in the European Union (EU) from June 2017 after lawmakers reached a deal in the early hours of Tuesday morning following marathon talks.
Typically, mobile operators charge extra fees to make calls, send text messages and use data abroad, but the new rules will see European consumers paying the same prices across all 28-member states.
Latvia, which holds the rotating EU presidency, confirmed the move after 12 hours of negotiation talks.
There are, however, provisions to stop people taking advantage of the new rules, for example, if someone permanently moves abroad but has a mobile subscription from their home country.
European lawmakers have been working to abolish the roaming fees altogether since 2007. Charges have been slowly coming down over the years and will drop further in April 2016.
