Telia Denmark said it is providing all its subscriptions that do not already include Roam Like Home with 5 GB of internet to use in foreign countries, but it will be raising the price by DKK 10 to DKK 20 per month. This is in response to the EU’s abolition of EU roaming charges on 15 June. Telia said most subscribers are already on Roam Like Home and so will see no change to their subscription fee.

Telia said that 90 percent of its customers use their mobile phone on a foreign network every year, so it would rather raise prices for those not already on Roam Like Home than circumvent the regulations by offering domestic-only subscriptions. At the same time, it said the new rule takes away customers’ freedom of choice as to whether or not to use Roam Like Home, adding that the price rise will not make the operator rich.
