Mobile roaming charges in the EU are set to end completely by mid-June 2017, and as of 30th April this year rates will be capped at a reduced rate as part of the phase-out process.

Commission Vice-President Ansip had this to say:

We’re in the home stretch now before the end of roaming charges in 2017. This is not only about Europeans saving money, this is about bringing down barriers in the Digital Single Market.

For details of the changes, you can read more in this section of Europa (example costs are in Euros). Read about the Digital Single Market here.
