Three cuts international roaming charges in seven countries

Sunday, September 1st 2013

Customers of operator Three will no longer have to pay international roaming charges when they travel to any of the seven countries such as Republic of Ireland, Austria, Australia, Italy, Denmark, Hong Kong and Sweden. With this Three has become the first network to scrap roaming charges altogether.

Three customers who are on pay monthly basis also will be able to use free text, data and minutes when they are off to other countries. But customers who are on unlimited plans might have some restriction. Following this other operators particularly who have their networks in other countries are also likely to follow Three’s announcement.

According to a senior analyst at Ovum, the deal has been introduced in those countries where there was a demand to lower roaming charges. Also, the listed countries are outside the European Union.
