    No!

    A £2 daily fee will apply when roaming in 47 European destinations, except the Republic of Ireland.

    BT-owned EE has joined O2 and will start to charge customers for mobile usage in other European countries.
    The move comes after the company previously said it had no plans to reintroduce them after Brexit.

    It will now mean new customers and those upgrading from July 7 will face a £2 daily fee from January 2022 to use their data, minutes and text allowance when roaming in 47 European destinations.

    The Republic of Ireland will be exempt.

    EE said the move is designed to “support investment into our UK-based customer service and leading UK network”.

    And officially on the EE website

    EU ROAMING CHARGES AND CHANGES:

    ——

    Will these changes affect me?  Yes

    For pay monthly handset and SIM customers:

    If your plan started before 7 July 2021: If you’re on a pay monthly plan and your contract started before 7 July 2021, these changes will not affect you.

    If your plan started on or after 7 July 2021: If you take out a pay monthly handset or SIM plan from 7 July onwards, there will be a daily charge for using your phone in our European roaming zone (see list of destinations). However, we won’t apply the new EU roaming charges until January 2022.

    For pay monthly tablet, laptop and mobile broadband customers:

    If your plan started before 18 August 2021: If you’re on a pay monthly tablet, laptop, mobile broadband or data SIM plan and your contract started before 18 August 2021, these changes will not affect you.

    If your plan started on or after 18 August 2021: If you take a pay monthly tablet, laptop, mobile broadband or data SIM plan from 18 August 2021 onwards, there will be a daily charge for using your phone in our European roaming zone (see list of destinations). However, we won’t apply the new roaming charges until January 2022.

    What will the new charges for EU roaming be after January 2022?

    From January 2022, you can use your minutes, texts and data allowances in our European roaming zone (see list of destinations) for £2 a day.

    Here’s how the new charges will work:

    One low fixed daily payment of £2 per day

    You don’t need to do anything to opt in: if you use your allowances you’ll pay £2 for that day, and if you don’t, you won’t be charged anything

    All your allowances work just like at home – and you can buy more data if you need to.

    As there is no UK legislation to stop this all of these companies will bring it back.  I stopped showing any loyalty long ago and get the cheapest SIM only deal that’s available each year.

    O2 has announced to its customers that it will be introducing a fair usage cap of 25GB when roaming in the EU from August.

    Alas EE (British) and O2 (Spanish) will not miss opportunities for profit, time for us to create a new independent telecommunications company – UKTechHub comms maybe ;-)
