Cheaper calls to other EU countries from today

As of today, a new maximum price will apply for all international calls and texts within the EU.

As a result, consumers calling from Portugal to another EU country and vice-a-versa, will pay a maximum amount of 19 cents per minute and 6 cents per text message.

This follows the end of roaming charges in June 2017, which saw people travelling within the EU charged the same rates as in their home member state.

Because they need to contact people and organisations who are not on WhatsApp, Viber or Skype - that's why Viber Out and Skype Credit exist.

Why on earth would anyone pay for international phone calls these days when there’s “what’s up viper, Skype”, etc... around!
