Vodafone to bring back roaming charges from January
Vodafone has become the second UK mobile company to reintroduce roaming charges for users travelling in Europe. Vodafone's approach is to limit those that include roaming in Europe to "Selected plans", including its more expensive options. "Existing customers will not be impacted by these changes while they remain on their current price plan, and roaming in the Republic of Ireland will still be included for all customers," Vodafone said. Currently, O2 allows a roaming limit of 25GB, with any data used over that charged at £3.50 per gigabit. Uswitch mobile analyst Ernest Doku, said: "In the aftermath of Brexit, the UK's biggest mobile providers all said that they had no immediate plans to change their charging models for consumers roaming within the EU."It's disappointing for consumers to see that the situation looks to be shifting, with a risk that roaming at no additional cost could soon be a distant memory for UK residents.
