Government to legislate anew on roaming charges

Government to legislate anew on roaming charges

Advice on mobile roaming charges has also been issued.

 

A further advisory says: “In the unlikely event we leave the EU without a deal, the costs EU mobile operators would be able to charge UK operators for providing roaming services would no longer be regulated after March 2019.

 

"This would mean that surcharge-free roaming when you travel to the EU could no longer be guaranteed.

 

“However, the government would legislate to ensure the requirements on mobile operators to apply a financial limit on mobile data usage while abroad is retained in UK law.

 

“The limit would be set at £45 per monthly billing period, as at present (currently €50 under EU law).

 

The government would also legislate, subject to parliamentary approval, to ensure the alerts at 80% and 100% data usage continue.”
