Until recently, Britons visiting an EU country were able to make mobile calls and use data there without additional costs. But because of Brexit, several operators are coming back to that.
After EE, Vodafone is now also going to breathe new life into so-called roaming charges.
From January 2022, new Vodafone customers and users who upgrade their subscription will have to cough up at least one pound per day to be able to use their phone in an EU country. That reports BBC News.
The operator is thus following the example of competitor EE, which already announced the move in June. Earlier, all British operators indicated that they had no plans to reintroduce roaming charges after Brexit.
Vodafone’s new terms and conditions will come into effect from Wednesday, 11 August, although roaming charges will not actually be charged until January 2022.
The charges can go up to £2 a day – those who buy a bundle for eight or 15 days pays half. A fair usage policy of 25 gigabytes applies to mobile data.
