EU extends free roaming for Ukrainians for another year

The European Commission has extended free roaming to Ukrainians for another year, it said on 10 July. The agreement involves 22 European and seven Ukrainian operators.

The initial agreement first signed on 22 April 2022, allows the providers “to mutually lower the rates they must sustain to connect calls across borders” so that “those seeking shelter in Europe to reach family and friends in Ukraine, and vice versa.”

In parallel, the Commission has been preparing to integrate Ukraine into the EU Roaming area, which would provide a more stable and longer-term solution.

In April 2023, the EU-Ukraine association committee adopted the Commission’s proposal for Ukraine to join the EU Roaming rules. The next step is for Ukraine to fully align their legislation with that of the EU and then for the Council of the European Union to adopt the final decision.
