Following the European Union’s decision to cap roaming charges, telcos operating in Hungary modified their general contract conditions, the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) said yesterday, according to reports.

Under the EU’s decision, roaming charges in the European Union were capped at the price for domestic service plus €0.05 per minute for voice calls and per megabyte for data transfer, according to Hungarian news agency MTI. 

Charges for taking calls were capped at the domestic price plus €0.0114 (HUF 4.4) per minute and charges for text messages were limited to the domestic price plus €0.02 (HUF 7.7).

Under an earlier decision reached by the EU, roaming charges will be eliminated entirely in the European Union as of June 15, 2017.
