Three abolishes some roaming charges http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-23896896
UK mobile network Three have been at the vanguard of new ideas and challenges to established mobile tariff practices since their inception. Now they are taking on the most contentious: international roaming charges.
Three are removing roaming charges for its UK customers visiting seven countries (see article for list), enabling them to carry on using their included minutes, texts and data while abroad.
This is great news for anyone who travels regularly and a bold step that will surely force other networks to follow suit. About time say I! For far too long mobile carriers have been punishing roaming customers with crippling call and data rates: a policy that seems to have been implemented for no other reason than “because they can”. Let’s hope this move signals the start of fair sensible pricing.
