Vodafone to cut roaming prices

Mobile phones

With the EU breathing down their necks with the threat of legislation, one of the big mobile companies, Vodafone, has announced that roaming charges will drop by 40 per cent in Europe.

But it’s not all good news – the new prices will not come into effect until next April and to get the deal, you’ll have to register for a Vodfone passport. These are free and once you’re registered, you’ll pay a one-off connection fee of 75p per call in 14 European countries, then you’ll be charged UK rates.

T-Mobile has also announced a cut in the cost of roaming charges to a flat rate off 55p a minute in Europe and North America from June 1st – a 45 percent cut on T-Mobile’s current pre-pay European rates and a 27 per cent cut on current contract rates.
