Mobile roaming: What will happen to charges after Brexit? Empty Mobile roaming: What will happen to charges after Brexit?

In June 2017 the European Union (EU) scrapped additional charges for roaming on mobile phones when you travel to another EU country. Roaming is when you use your mobile phone abroad.

Since 2017, UK consumers have, within reason, been able to use the minutes, texts and data included on their mobile phone tariffs when travelling in the EU. The same is true for consumers from other EU countries visiting the UK.
There are fair use limits, which mean you can use your mobile phone while travelling in another EU country, but you could not, for example, get a mobile phone contract from Greece and then use it all year round in the UK.
Before the rules changed, using a mobile phone in Europe was expensive, with cases of people returning from trips to find bills for hundreds or even thousands of pounds waiting for them.
Will these charges return after Brexit?
After leaving the EU on 31 January 2020, the UK entered a transition period during which virtually all EU rules and regulations - including on mobile phone roaming - still apply.
The transition will end on 31 December 2020.

If nothing is agreed then mobile operators would be able to implement roaming charges after the end of the transition period.
The government released guidance on 13 July 2020 saying: "From 1 January 2021, the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway will end."
"Check with your phone operator to find out about any roaming charges you might get from 1 January 2021."
The government has passed legislation that would provide some safeguards for consumers:
Operators' plans
Of course, just because the operators might be allowed to reintroduce roaming charges, it does not necessarily mean that they would do so.
The problem is that without the EU rules in place, the charges would depend on agreements between UK operators and their counterparts in EU countries.
While they may have such deals in place to prevent charges increasing straight away at the start of 2021, there is no guarantee that they would be able to maintain them indefinitely.
There are three factors that mean there is a reasonable chance of UK operators being able to continue to offer inclusive roaming:
