Changes to roaming charges in EU-regulated countries and out-of-bundle call charges

We’re making two important changes this summer. These are:
1 July 2015 – changes to roaming charges in EU-regulated countries
10 August 2015 – changes to out-of-bundle charges

Changes to roaming charges in EU-regulated countries – from 1 July 2015


Good news – from 1 July 2015 we’ll be making roaming cheaper when you’re abroad.

Out-of-bundle call charges – from 10 August 2015


From 10 August 2015, we’ll be changing our out-of-bundle charges for all calls to UK numbers to a standard rate of 45p a minute – and 45p for selected services, such as picture and video messaging .This means some charges will be lower, others will rise and some will stay the same.

You’ll pay our out-of-bundle charge if you go over your monthly bundle allowance or if your bundle doesn’t include any of these services:
