    + It is not a unilateral decision. Roaming partners have a say as well as the home operator. Let's subsidise VF they are all saying.

    We hold all the cards.

    I doubt many will be affected, except possibly those on PAYG roaming. Business data packages are worldwide, and no network will want to be the first to exclude European countries from their inclusive coverage. They would lose all their high revenue customers to rivals, who then would have no need to follow suit.

    My Three data plan covers the USA and Australia so why wouldn't it continue to cover Europe?

    My guess is that they’ll charge a ‘holiday fee’ of £10-20 for a week, to avoid the £200+ bills that you’d otherwise get.

    It would be a no brainer to pay it...

    Thing is you pay ( most likely) more than for a standard data plan that doesn't cover these regions. Currently all EU countries are included for free in everyone's dataplan

    It won’t happen overnight but slowly and surely most providers will treat EU countries as ‘other’ countries and charge per day or per MB.

    However, we being brits, we will just tolerate all this through gritted teeth and mutter that at least we are independent of EU so we are better off.

    I read the new regulations with regard to UK citizens on the German government website. There they explained that you will be questioned by a border guard every time you enter the Germany. That is going to lead to long queues.

    Or we'll choose our holiday hotels wisely so they have free wifi. If you want to watch Love Island 'live' on a beach in Corfu, you deserve a £300 bill. Download it the next morning while you're 'enjoying' a fairly unpleasant breakfast of feta and olives and you won't pay anything over the odds.
    You lot are about as technically aware as my octogenarian parents. It's embarrassing...
