The Minister of Communications and Works, Mr Marios Demetriades, participated in the EU Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council, which took place today in Brussels, where issues of telecommunications, digital agenda and networks and information security were discussed. During its deliberations, the Council was engaged with the latest developments regarding the new Regulation on the European Digital Single Market, which aims to the improvement of the IT service delivery to consumers, such as the open internet and internet neutrality and roaming charges. In his intervention, Mr Demetriades made particular reference to the issue of roaming charges and more specifically, to the proposal “Roam Like At Home” (RLAH), stressing that Cyprus, as a tourist destination, is considered clearly as a country of incoming roaming. In this context, the Minister of Communications stated that the introduction of RLAH, before a complete analysis of the proposal’s impact in each member state, may lead to an increase in local taxes, because of the need to finance the upgrading of the infrastructure and the network in order to adapt to the new user interface. - 27.11.2014
