Phone firm 3 means phone home cheap
Mobile company 3 has abolished ‘roaming’ charges for its UK customers in seven countries across the world, including Australia, Republic of Ireland, Sweden and Denmark, meaning cheaper utility bills for many.
Users will not be charged for making calls or receiving calls or texts when visiting these countries, with Italy, Austria and Hong Kong being the other three nations 3 has derestricted, as it runs networks in each of these places.
The company stated that calls from any of these countries back to the UK would come under the usual monthly call allowance for each caller and would be charged at the same rate as a domestic call, thereby guaranteeing cheaper utility bills than hitherto.
If a customer exceeds their monthly call allowance when phoning from one of the seven countries they are then charged a flat fee of 20p a minute in line with company policy. 3 added that UK customers would be able to make video calls and acess the Internet at the usual domestic rate.
“The launch of the 3 Like Home scheme will significantly ebnefit our customers as they travel between the 3 group’s networks,” said 3 spokesperson Christian Salbaing.
“It underlines our commitment to fair treatment and reasonable pricing for all our customers and bringing them cheaper utility bills,” he added.
