Brexit forces Vodafone UK to reintroduce roaming charges in Europe

Published

Vodafone has reintroduced roaming charges for UK mobile customers travelling in Europe

British telco, Vodafone has announced it will reintroduce roaming charges in Europe for UK mobile customers from January next year.

The company is the latest UK carrier to reintroduce the fees after the country’s departure from the European Union.

Vodafone has made changes to international roaming.

The move follows a similar U-turn from EE telco in June

All major carriers in the country previously stated they had no plans to introduce roaming fees in Europe after the Brexit vote – but that has been short promised.

The move follows a similar U-turn from EE telco in June

How it works:

The fees will apply to any Vodafone customers who sign up to or change their contract from August 11th, 2021, with the fees applying from January 6th, 2022.

Costs are dependent on a customer’s specific mobile plan, but most customers will pay £2 a day to use their UK allowance of calls, texts, and data within Europe, or £1 a day if access is bought in eight- or 15-day bundles.

But wait, there’s some good news:

Customers signed up to Vodafone’s “Unlimited Data Xtra plan with 4 Xtra benefits” or “Limited Data Xtra plan with 4 Xtra benefits” will pay no extra fee to use their UK allowance in Europe.

All UK Vodafone customers traveling to the Republic of Ireland, an EU member state, will not have to pay any roaming fees regardless of their contract.

Full details of the new payment plans can be found here.

A British digital currency “later this decade”

Published

on

The Bank of England and Britain’s finance ministry think the UK is likely to need to create a central bank digital currency later this decade.

“On the basis of our work to date, the Bank of England and HM Treasury judge that it is likely a digital pound will be needed in the future,” the Telegraph quoted BoE Governor Andrew Bailey and finance minister Jeremy Hunt as saying in the joint report.

“It is too early to commit to build the infrastructure for one, but we are convinced that further preparatory work is justified,” the Telegraph quoted the report saying.

The BoE declined to comment on the Telegraph article, but said a joint consultation on CBDC issues would be published shortly.

A government source said the report would be published next week.

BoE Deputy Governor Jon Cunliffe is due to give a speech on Tuesday to update the finance industry on the BoE’s CBDC work.
