Mobile Charges Force British Expatriates In Europe To Turn Phones Off
Mobile charges when you’re outside the UK can become a touchy subject, especially when in your experience you have been hit by huge mobile roaming charges. Experience has meant many British expatriate travellers in Europe resort to turning their mobile phones off when they leave their home nation.
Currently there is really no solution, and the only one which could work is one single mobile market. But the odds of that happening can at best be very slim. However, if a single currency can be created for the Eurozone region, then creating a single mobile market cannot be anymore difficult. Therefore, there is no real reason for it not to exist.
Free Wi-Fi allows Brits abroad to limit their mobile phone usage
28,000 phone users across the Eurozone took part in research, from which it was revealed that almost 95% are worried about mobile charges. This percentage makes up 300 million Europeans, who will disconnect their phones or limit its use to avoid facing monumental phone bills.
The price of using phones across Europe is a big deal, and it will have a big impact on technology companies. Many of whom will have a hard time in designing useful apps for British expatriate travellers in Europe to use.
There are restaurants and many other locations across Europe which offer free Wi-Fi, and this means phone calls can be made for free using specific phone applications. This is not always convenient, and is something which needs to be looked at so that people are able to use their portable technology without any financial concern. Especially British expatriate travellers in Europe.
