At Long Last!

Good news if you holiday in Europe (or travel there on business), because as of 15 June 2017 mobile roaming fees will be abolished!

Other good roaming news is that starting from 30 April 2016, the existing price caps on roaming will change, and consumers will be allowed to roam in the EU from their existing post-paid bundle or home prepaid rates.

Hopefully this will mean the end of ludicrously high mobile bills after going on holiday in Lanzarote or wherever. It’s usually the roaming data charges which are really painful. They can be unexpectedly large because people frequently don’t turn data roaming off and still expect to look at their email, use Twitter and Facebook etc.
