star this property answer text <p>In the event of a deal, surcharge-free roaming would continue to be guaranteed during the Implementation Period. Following the Implementation Period the arrangements for roaming, including surcharges, would depend on the outcome of the negotiations on the Future Economic Partnership. The Political Declaration on the UK's Future Economic Partnership proposes a framework for negotiations with the EU, including for services and digital sectors. That approach would not preclude discussions with the EU on arrangements for consumers, for example in the area of mobile roaming.</p><p> </p><p>In the event of no deal, the government has published a technical notice on mobile roaming.

star this property answer text <p>UK has consistently pushed for faster reductions to roaming charges in the EU, leading to their abolition. I am therefore pleased that, on 29 June, the European Council, Parliament and Commission reached agreement on the Telecoms Single Market Package.</p><p>As a result, from June 2017 British visitors will no longer be charged extra to use their mobile phones anywhere in the EU. From June 2016 until the abolition of roaming charges, the amount providers can charge for roaming will be about 25% of current roaming tariffs for calls and data.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has been central to shaping these negotiations, which will result in real benefits for UK consumers, demonstrating that the UK can achieve positive change in the EU when we work with determination with other Member States and the EU institutions.</p> more like this
