UK network Three have just announced an additional 5 countries have been added to their great roaming service called ‘Feel at Home’
If you did not know about the service before now, it lets you take your UK allowance of calls, texts AND data abroad to certain countries free of charge so there is no roaming fee.
And if you have AYCE data you can use up to 25GB in a single trip, more than enough to show off your best pics with jealous friends and family back home.
The new countries added to the list are
France, Switzerland, Israel, Norway and Finland just in time for the summer break if you plan to visit one of these places.
This brings the list of free roaming countries too
- Hong Kong
- Sri Lanka
We are expecting even more countries to be added to the list later this year and really welcome these to the industry.
This great service works for both Pay Monthly as well as Pay as you Go plus also Mobile Broadband so you can take your dongle or iPad away with you and never worry about a huge bill.
Below is the press release explaining more detail
