Zelensky signed the law on a single roaming zone with the EU

    The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, signed the Law “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Regarding the Implementation of European Union Legislation on Roaming.” The legislative act adopted by the Verkhovna Rada on May 22 is an important step on the way to European integration of Ukraine in the field of electronic communications.

    Law No. 10265 provides for the joining of Ukraine to the joint roaming zone with the EU and the provision of roaming services to Ukrainian users on the territory of the European Union in the Roam-Like-At-Home (RLAH) mode. This means that when traveling to EU countries, calls, SMS and Internet traffic will be included in the home service package without additional payments. Subscribers of European operators will receive similar benefits during their stay in Ukraine.

    The adopted law harmonizes national norms in the field of electronic communications with EU legislation. It is designed to significantly improve the investment climate for the domestic telecommunications business. Ukrainian companies, working according to the rules unified with the European Union, will gain a high degree of trust from European partners.

    In addition, the law paves the way for effective cooperation of Ukraine with the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC). This will allow to synchronize the regulatory policy in this area in accordance with the approaches in force in the EU. In general, the new law brings Ukraine closer to obtaining the regime of the European Union’s internal market in the field of electronic communications.

    The signing of this document is an important step on the path of Ukraine’s integration into the EU’s single digital market. Citizens will be able to enjoy the benefits of unhindered roaming within the unified zone, and the telecommunications business will get new opportunities to strengthen its position and develop in a unified legal field.
