Vodafone to bring back roaming charges from January
Tech & IT desk || shiningbd
Vodafone has become the second UK mobile company to reintroduce roaming charges for users travelling in Europe.
From January, new and upgrading customers will be charged at least £1 a day to use their mobile phone in EU destinations, on several tariffs.
It follows similar plans from rival EE, announced in June.
Initially, all operators said they would not reintroduce a roaming charge after Brexit, despite having the option to.
Vodafone's approach is to limit those that include roaming in Europe to "selected plans", including its more expensive options.
The rules will change for new and upgrading customers from Wednesday, 11 August, though the charges will not apply until January.
"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.
After January, affected customers can pay £2 a day to use their allowance in Europe - £1 if bought in an eight or 15-day bundle.
Fair-usage limits also apply at 25GB of roaming data a month.
