EU roaming speeds see slowdown

In June last year, long-awaited European legislation that abolished additional fees for using your mobile phone in another member state finally came into effect.

The news was welcomed due to dramatically reducing the cost of roaming, but new data from Ookla’s Speedtest has suggested that many Europeans still suffer a disparity in terms of the speeds they enjoy at home compared to what they do abroad.

The mean download speed in EU member states is 30.57Mbps but drops to 25.5Mbps when in another country.
