EU Roaming Cancelled
« on: May 15, 2017, 09:45:29 AM »
With the tariffs for roaming in the EU being cancelled I got a bit confused as to which countries are participating.
A lot of sources on the net are contradicting each other.

Is the UK included? (or the commonwealth by extension? Brexit Ho!)
Switzerland? (probly not?)
All those other border nations?

Edit:
It seems my provider just answered me with a list.

What do you mean the roaming has been cancelled?
I haven't heard anything about it.

Oh, you probably mean that the tariffs abroad cost the same as at home?
When I was in Portugal last month I got a text with the tariffs there, and they were still a bit higher than the domestic ones.

No more extra fees when traveling is exactly what I mean.
It only starts today under some providers and will eventually be forced on all providers on June 15.

Oh! That's good then - I doubt it will be valid on UK tariffs, they'll use Brexit as an excuse ;)

That's what I thought and only thing I found is this:

Despite the current Brexit discussions, this deal will still apply to UK residents as EU law is still in effect. It's not clear yet how the UK leaving the union will impact the deal, though some networks such as Three already offer customers free roaming in several countries.

I assume it'll be part of the ongoing Brexit negotiations. I hope the UK politicians don't make a mess of it (oh wait...)

If they let me stay here without any paperwork, I won't mind if I have to pay a bit more to use my phone abroad ;D
