In a significant stride towards regional cooperation and affordable mobile communication, the reduction of roaming costs between EU and the Western Balkans, signed at the EU-Western Balkans Summit in Tirana on December 6, 2022, has officially taken effect, marking October 1, 2023, as a date of change.

After almost a year of joint work, under the facilitation umbrella and support from the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) and the European Commission, and with political support from the EU and the Western Balkans, telecommunications operators from both the Western Balkans and the European Union have not only met the requirements of the declaration but, in many cases, have exceeded expectations.

– As of this October, the price cap for 1 GB of data roaming within the special offers and packages, in line with the Roaming Declaration, should not exceed EUR 18, making international travel and communication significantly more cost-effective – the RCC says in a press release.

In many cases, as explained, the price cap of EUR 18 within special offers and packages goes even much lower, down to EUR 1.6 per 1 GB, while three Western Balkan operators, beside package prices lowered even regular, ‘pay-as-you-go’ prices.
