european union EU Parliament says network roaming must end by 2016, net neutrality must be preserved

Mobile operators within the European Union might have to phase out their roaming practices following a vote by the European Parliament to end roaming fees by 2016. The vote calls for operators in the 28 member nations of the EU to cease charging customers for roaming when traveling in other member nations. A German traveling in Spain would not have to pay extra for using phones, and the same would be true for other EU members traveling within the "single market" region that treats service the same everywhere.

The anti-roaming legislation still requires approval from the Council of the European Union, which is expected to make a decision by October 2014. The Council will also discuss the principles of maintaining net neutrality, which would prevent carriers from penalizing traffic for some content types or sources. Companies would not be allowed to block or throttle services, and they also could not prioritize one service over another.

Operators are against the legislation because it would prevent them from charging extra for video streaming or music downloads, deals that Internet Service Providers are striking in the United States. There are also estimates that operators would see revenue drop 5 percent.
