Brexit expansive roaming, especially for British

The Brexit has an impact on mobile radioing, at the expense of travelers consumers. Since February 2020, Great Britain and Northern Ireland are no longer part of the European Union, which does not intervene the EU roaming regulation there. However, the British mobile network operators had before leaving the country from the EU ("Brexit") Promised, even after nothing at EU roaming. Two of the four British network operators, EE and Vodafone, break this promise after less than two years.

Ee customers have to pay during travel to the EU or to Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway from the turn of the year Roaming fees, provided they are after the 6. July have chosen a current tariff. At Vodafone UK, the settlement of fun days begins to epiphanias. Affected are for the time being customers with accounting ("postpaid") After the 10. August a new tariff elections.

Both network operators charge roaming in the form of daily or weekly packages. Ireland travelers are not affected by the price of the year until further notice. So far, the competitors O2 and Three have not annoyed no pricing of roaming in the EU.

A1 already collects

As it looks in the opposite direction, so when traveling with EU SIM cards to Great Britain or Northern Ireland, is inconsistent. Because EU regulation does not intervene, the situation can change at any time. Vodafones German website promises that "Great Britain remains part of the EU roaming zone after leaving the European Union. You use your tariff there without additional costs as at home in Germany."

Telefonica Germany (o2) holds its options open and writes that "For the UK despite leaving the EU to 31.12.2021 Only the price of Zone 1 (EU regulated) will continue to be billed (reliable)." Similar to Deutsche Telekom: "For the time being, the Great Britain will continue to be treated like an EU country."

The Easter-rich market fuels A1 already charges Roaming fees. Other competitor Magenta Austria: The Easter-rich subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom promises on their website that nothing else. The Chinese network operator three (Hutchison Three Austria) hold it like o2 and the Telekom in Germany: three are the "Assignment of Great Britain (including. Northern Ireland) Zum Zone 1" Expected, but has not set the step so far.

Intercompany settlement of consumers

The elimination of EU regulation in relation to coincidence and Northern Ireland does not bob the end customer prices, but also the purchase prices of the network operators for roaming in foreign networks. In the absence of EU regulation, the gross trading prices can now be freely designed. Whether and which influence that has on the roaming performance is not publicly known.

For British network operators, the implications are theoretically much more far-reaching than EU network operator. For the former, EU regulation has completely dropped away, for the latter only in terms of coincidence and Northern Ireland. Practically, the situation is still a bit more complex: Most network operators have either group companies in several other countries or otherwise part of a shopping group. Therefore, it is not easy from Aufen to scramble the real impact on purchasing prices.

It is difficult to comprehensible that the Vodafone exposes the promise given before Brexit: The Group operates mobile networks in Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Czech Republic and Hungary – the large part of the EU roaming British customers remain in their own house. Even if the roaming purchase prices should have changed for Vodafone UK, the money finally finishes from one group bag to the other. Soon there will be more money from British Vodafone customers to the Cusset bags.
