New EU directives, how about Switzerland?

Operators in EU has made deal for data roaming, rate should be same where ever you are in EU. Does this apply to Switzerland?

Also 2015 new inheritance tax method will be in place where you pay the taxes per living country legistations instead of from where you are getting the inheritance. I am pretty sure this is interesting point for all Finnish/Swedish people relocated to Switzerland..

That is absolutely true, however there has been decisions made which gets some bidirectional goodies available.

Of course, but we are refering to mobile networks.

Re: New EU directives, how about Switzerland?

Perhaps a better question would be "will this ever apply to Switzerland?". Maybe it will have to happen as a result of some arcane convolution in one of the bilateral treaties.

Re: New EU directives, how about Switzerland?

Things move slowly here so don't hold you breath. It took until 2011 until Swisscom introduced monthly rolling contracts after the initial term expired, The other network operators have yet to do so as far as I know.

Based on that I don't see Swiss network operators ditching the jack booted, rip off, money grabbing, mugging lucrative business model they have when it comes to data roaming with any alacrity.

Hmm.. what I have seen is that Swiss operators already have pretty good model for foreign calls? Probably I have understood this wrongly..

Re: New EU directives, how about Switzerland?

The Swiss government has already decided not to join in the roaming charge abolition party:

Re: New EU directives, how about Switzerland?

Not that I expect the extortionists that are mobile providers to actually supply anything resembling a competitive service, but I suppose the question then, would be if Switzerland would be considered included in the EU to the EU operators?

Because then there could suddenly be a real alternative.

Re: New EU directives, how about Switzerland?

It will help me to call people back home for free. Vodafone Romania includes in EU roaming also Switzerland so that means that with a Vodafone Ro sim I can call people back home for free because it says that it is the tariff from the home network and if you have unlimited calls it means for free (but you need to be on the partner network...Swisscom)

True, but EU-directives/laws are automatically taken into consideration in both chambers of parliament, and are usually adopted, as far as possible

Mobile networks are not limited to national borders. Countless Germands use Swiss mobile networks. And such things usually get adopted by parliament usually within 3 years (or less)
