The first network to block roaming charges will end up with a huge influx of customers. A little healthy competition...

They'll make it a £5 "bolt on" and if you forget to add it before you go away you'll be charged a fortune.

…text from home if you can and only text outside if you must…anyone who can’t text from home should be actively discouraged from texting outside…but if you can’t text from home, text outside…don’t text outside…

a couple of the networks have already said they will charge £2 a day roaming charge, and the other networks will fall into line, i'm sure

£28 for a 2 week holiday which is pretty steep... but I'm convinced this is so that they can sell a £5/week bolt on and make that seem "like a great deal" as it works out as about 70p/day.

For those doing a lot of international travel, inevitably there will be contract options with roaming built-in eventually, probably for an extra £10 a month.

If you were eligible to vote but didn’t and would have voted remain, you are just as culpable as those who voted leave imo

WhatsApp uses data, if just text not as much, bit photos/videos/call/video calling seems to use a tonne

…it isn’t COVID related, Arista…it’s poxy Brexit related…the gift that keeps on taking…and especially from those who were struggling already…

Travellers from the UK had been able to escape roaming charges thanks to a ban on the fees throughout the European Union since 2017.

But the trade deal brokered between the bloc and the UK did not allow for Britons to keep this advantage.
