It coincides with the incoming abolition of such fees by the European Union on 15 June.

UK MOBILE OPERATOR O2 has promptly followed EE with the announcement that it will also scrap European roaming charges from next month.

Pay monthly customers will be able to use their call, text and data allowances in non-EU or EEA territories like Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Monaco and Switzerland but pay as you go users will not unless they purchase a bolt-on.

O2's Europe Zone covers 47 countries for contract and business customers, including Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden and The Netherlands.

02 customers will also be able to take their plan into some non-EU countries.

What Are Analysts Report About Glu Mobile, Inc. (GLUU)
The company reported ($0.17) earnings per share (EPS ) for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of ($0.09) by $0.08. The company reported the earnings of $-0.01/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $-0.07/share.

Customers will receive more information on May 15 but will not have to make any changes to receive the benefits. It has not yet become clear if United Kingdom operators will be able to reintroduce roaming fees when the United Kingdom has left the bloc in 2019.

"I think it would go down very, very badly with customers - it would be a very bold and perhaps foolhardy option", he told the BBC.

You might also want to keep an eye on O2's social media pages later today (they didn't specify which ones), because the network is commemorating this occasion by giving away three weekend breaks - complete with flights, accommodation, and £500 to spend on whatever it is you like spending holiday money on.

"It would be very hard for them to do that just because the United Kingdom is such a competitive market and we've moved such a long way from roaming".

Other studies suggest fear of bill shock means many travellers turn roaming off and use Wi-Fi or even switch their phone off entirely when overseas, meaning no revenue is generated for operators.
