EU Mobile roaming charges coming...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-57595913

EE to charge £2 a day to use your mobile in the EU from next year. O2 announced something similar as well. So it begins...

I don’t see why anyone is surprised by this.  The UK voted for this and I think this potential cost was highlighted before the referendum.

I honestly can’t remember if BJ said it wouldn’t happen.

Not surprised just another direct cost of exiting the EU.

I LOOK FORWARD TO PAYING ROAMING CHARGES AND WILL PAY THEM WITH PRIDE AS EACH PAYMENT REPRESENTS MY HARD WON FREEDOM FROM THE TOTALITARIAN EUSSR...

I JUST WISH THEY COULD BE RENAMED SO THAT EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS WHAT THEY REPRESENT... PERHAPS INSTEAD OF “ROAMING CHARGES” THEY COULD BE LABELLED AS A “BREXIT TAX”??

So £14 on the cost of a week's holiday to France? So a decent bottle of wine equivalent?

It's not really armageddon,  is it?

Interesting as I am overseas and still using my UK  mobile. I'm on 3 and they aren't mentioned and nor have they said anything to me. Hoping to be moved back to the UK at start of January anyway so probably won't have that much bearing on my life.

It’s just another little example of how most people are made worse off by Brexit.  You can it to the list of a myriad of things-  they all add up

How is this going to effect the 5G chip injected in all of us by Bill Gates and his cronies?

Not most people guy. The middle class tedes who holiday at their gite and want their cheap latte here. 

It will hit the budget holiday makers to Spain and Greece harder Risky.

When you add it to their unlimited cheap booze and fags the bill is getting quite steep.

as if hanners gives a shit about poor people

The ones I feel most for are those in the Channel Islands. They don't even live in the UK so don't get any of the benefits of Brexit, yet the mobile phone companies include the Channel Islands in their Europe zone so they'll soon be getting charged every time they return to the UK.

And the half dozen people in and around Dover who didn't vote for Brexit and will now get charged a couple of quid every time their phones pick up the French signal

"Interesting as I am overseas and still using my UK  mobile. I'm on 3 and they aren't mentioned and nor have they said anything to me."

 

Didn't 3 used to offer free European roaming even before the EU mandated it ?

Coracle, why would we get charged ‘every time we return to the uk’ as a result of this change?  We’re either on a Jersey network in which case we’ve always been charged; or we’re on a uk network in which case we wouldn’t be charged back in the uk. 
 

do You mean people visiting the Channel Islands from the uk will be charged for their roaming?
