Mobile operator EE (BT) has today stolen a march on the EU’s forthcoming removal of roaming charges next month by announcing that all existing Pay Monthly and pre-paid Pay As You Go (PAYG) subscribers will soon enjoy roaming to 47 European destinations “at no extra charge“.

The changes are timed to launch alongside the EU’s new regulation, which will be formally adopted by all mobile operators from 15th June 2017. At the same time EE also intends to introduce a new range of 4GEE Max plans, which they claim have been designed to offer improved roaming with “more inclusive destinations worldwide than any other UK network“.

In addition, customers with a free data boost as part of their PAYG pack or Pay Monthly data boost with their EE Home Broadband plan will also be able to use this data when they travel abroad as well as in the UK.

The 47 European Countries

EU: Austria, Azores ,Belgium, Bulgaria, Canary Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Gibraltar (UK), Greece, Guadeloupe, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malta, Martinique, Poland, Portugal, Reunion Islands, Romania, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin (French), San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands and Vatican City.

EEA: Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein

Additional destinations: Switzerland, Monaco, Isle of Man, Jersey & Guernsey

Apparently customers who would like to benefit from inclusive roaming before June can also sign-up at any time to one of the operator’s new plans, without affecting their upgrade dates or length of contract. The new 4GEE Max plans will go live from 10th May 2017 next Wednesday and these will allow customers to use their UK call, text and data allowances across a total of 52 destinations (as above plus the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand).

EE also states that their 4GEE Max customers will “get access to our fastest available 4G speeds abroad with 125 EE partner networks“.

Marc Allera, EE CEO, said:

“Our customers want to be able to stay connected whether they’re travelling around the UK or abroad. We go further to provide our customers with 4G in more places across the UK than any other operator, and we’re offering inclusive roaming in more destinations as well – so our customers can stay in touch whether they’re lying on a beach in the Mediterranean, checking out the latest restaurants in New York, or hiking in New Zealand.”

On top of all that EE has launched some new 4GEE plans to reflect their inclusive roaming across 47 European destinations and they’ve done the same for their cheapest 4GEE Essential plans too.
