Sky Mobile has announced that from June 1, the company will be abolishing roaming charges in all 36 countries throughout Europe.
The European Union has been busy trying to abolish roaming charges entirely, stating June 15th as the planned date for a roll-out. This Sky Mobile announcement comes shortly after similar plans from O2 and Vodafone, while Three recently expanded their ‘Feel At Home’ range to 60 countries.
All customers will now be able to enjoy their monthly texts, calls and data allowance at the standard rate throughout Europe. Calls to both mobiles and landlines to and from the EU are included and for any customer on Pay As You Go, calls and texts will be charged at the same rate as they are within the UK. Customers of Sky Mobile will also have access to low data roaming charges in 100 destinations outside of the EU such as 12p per MB in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
