Well that's all great but as is clearly said: a legal protection and an enforceable right is lost and its at best replaced by a commercial goodwill, not even in the hands of the contracted operator alone... it remains to be seen how long it takes before they succeed at reworking their tariff plan so it makes a revenue difference for them after all but I certainly wouldn't bet my house on it not being changed. If you want to do so, be very careful. Mobile phone operators are real crooks! Ask anybody who flew through GVA//BSL for instance what happens if you accidentally end up on the Swiss network iso the French network which are both active at these airports as you get your mails push delivered to you: on the 'wrong' network it sets you back the price of a stamp per e-mail while on the right network, its included in your contract. It hurts when you hear 7 or 8 'beeps' as the mails roll in and you realise your screen says Swisscom at the top!
Such is life in Switzerland and such life will become in the UK too. both are soon to sit in the same regulatory boat.
I never pay roaming in Switzerland either .In fact 71 destinations .
“ Go Roam lets you use your call, text and data allowance in 71 destinations around the world at no extra cost (up to fair usage limits). So, you can sit back, relax and get your ‘gram on without worrying about roaming charges.”
For those that do maybe time to change network !
3 offers a really useful product for frequent travellers. Don't be fooled though, they charge a hefty premium for it. If I only travelled in EU countries, I could get away with paying as little as 25% of what I pay for my 3 subscription.
A mate of mine was concerned about this and about EU roaming being lost after Brexit . Due to being laid off could not renew the contract . Turns out for £20 a month pay as you go top up he will get unlimited calls and texts with free roaming and 12GB of data a month . Thats a pretty good deal. Never understood why people tied themselves into 24 month contracts for a handset . Better to buy outright. Even after Brexit I don't see a race to ramp charges up as they could have been doing that with non EU roaming for years .
