No roaming in the UK despite Brexit

No roaming in the UK despite Brexit
A few more days and then it will definitely be Brexit. The transition period for the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union will end on 31 December 2020. A choice that will shift not a few equilibriums at an economic and diplomatic level. Fortunately, however, it will not lead to the reintroduction of paid roaming for those entering or leaving British borders.

United Kingdom: Brexit will not bring roaming with it

Formally the agreements the parties do not prohibit the application of additional costs for telephone calls, messages and data traffic, but reassurances come in this regard. What was announced today by four of the most important UK operators allows you to breathe a sigh of relief. This is the statement attributed to the top management of EE.

Our customers value inclusive roaming in Europe and beyond. We have no intention of changing it based on the consequences of Brexit. So our customers who go on holiday and travel to Europe will continue to be able to count on inclusive roaming.

On the same wavelength O2: the additional costs for roaming will not return.

We are committed to providing our customers with excellent connectivity and added value when traveling outside the UK. We currently have no plans to make any changes to our roaming services in Europe.

Vodafone and Three are not given any quotation marks, but according to BBC News even these two telcos have confirmed that there will be no changes compared to now. It remains to be seen how virtual operators will behave. It should be the same for those who move from the rest of the old continent to the UK due to the trade agreements signed.
