With summer holidays fast approaching, holiday makers to Europe can feel more assured that they won’t receive huge roaming bills due to enforced regulations that has lowered the cost of roaming within Europe. Unfortunately, travellers going further afield may be hit with even higher roaming fees in order to balance the cost this is having on many network operators.
Over the last few years, international roaming
charges have been raised outside the EU to compensate for lost revenue, particular to Asian countries. Simply receiving an incoming call can cost over £1.50 per min, with many users returning back home with the shock of a phone bill over £1,000 - in many cases more than the cost of the entire trip.
