So, KPN, D-Mobile and Vodafone are sticking to the promise that nothing will change, despite Brexit earlier this year.
When people use their mobile phone abroad, they use the network of a foreign provider. The company charges the Dutch provider for this, which means that customers pay extra for it. Within the EU, these costs were gradually phased out following the law, and from the summer of 2017, providers will no longer be allowed to charge for this.
The British provider charges the recurring costs
However, with Brexit, that provision no longer applies to the United Kingdom. Earlier this year, however, both British and European providers indicated they had no plans to reimburse roaming charges. That situation lasted only six months because the issuer later stated that EE wanted to charge the costs again. Overseas Britons pay 2 2 a day to that telecom company to use their phone in the EU.
EE is officially the only one to charge back roaming charges. However, another provider, O2, has tightened the maximum data limit for customers in the EU. Critics see this as the first step towards roaming charges.
