I remember when my mobile phone bill could have been calculated by the weight of the Â posted invoice. Â Any international road-warrior with requirements to provide support and be contactable has suffered extensively from roaming bills for calls and data. Â I wince at the thoughts of how much I cost my company on the mobile phone for making and taking calls from anywhere,anytime.
This is starting to change. Â Three.co.uk have made a brave move.
A few months ago I switched to the Three phone plan for my use from O2. Â This includes the “feel at home” data roaming option. Â Simply put, once I am in a country that is approved (including USA, ROI, Denmark, Sweden and m0re) I can happily data roam on my phone, or call the UK, all out of my normal plan. Â No extra charges. Â No selected networks. Â Now my smart phone stays smart, without having to worry about the cost. Â Hopefully other carriers follow. Â
