Outrageous Roaming Charges

Could anyone explain why data roaming charges with BT are 25 times higher than with Giffgaff?

In the EU that is. Montenegro isn't a member, soon to be joined by you know who.

@pottyperson, yes unfortunately so. So, does that mean we're now going to have to pay roaming charges on top of our contracts?!

Not in the short term but who knows in the future. Most of the phone providers have stated they have no plans at present to reintroduce roaming charges when the UK leave the EU.

Except that is the language all companies use. It is not to say that they haven't got a strategy, which will become a plan the moment the future Brexit deal becomes clear.

Hopefully we will have a transition deal and the mobile operators will continue to abide by the EU ruling during that time at least.
