    Project Fear predicted meltdown and plagues of locuts immediately after the vote, not really worth bringing it up is it?

    If it does happen then I'm sure the roaming charges will be reciprocated.

    But I'd think that competition amongst providers to offer the best package will ensure the costs are low or even zero. When I was in the US last year ( which, I don't believe is in the EU ) my roaming charges were minimal and entitled me to use my UK data and calls.

    You might not have heard of this, but there's this thing called "WiFi". It's pretty cool, its a near-ubiquitous offering throughout Europe and the UK. You can get it in hotels, in restaurants, pubs, cafes and in lots of public places and spaces. Lots of places offer it because it's a lure. Two coffee shops to choose from? I'd pick the one with WiFi.

    I cannot remember the last time I paid for WiFi.

    WhatsApp anyone?

    Try pulling your hair out with German "Wifi". Too many places have been burnt by Waldorf Fromer.

    Whereas in fact the economy is booming!

    On the bonny banks of the Danube in Bratislava there is free Wifi as noted by the signs on the benches there, sponsored by the government of Taiwan!
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Indeed it is. Better be optimistic and deal with changes as they occur then pessimistic and just roll over and die.

    The long-term trend is for mobile calls and data charges to tend towards zero. BREXIT or no BREXIT, EU or Non-EU.

    The long-term trend is for increased wi-fi coverage globally.

    In a decade we'll all be using our Elon Musk provided satellite-broadband anyway so it won't make one iota of difference.

    That's funny, I had not heard of it. Just had a quick read up.

    Well for me it's a non-issue. I generally use a VPN, don't download illegal torrents and very rarely visit Germany.

    The EU should mandate it across Europe. Level playing field and all that.

    At least it's good for creating new political parties:
