    Expect domestic tariffs to rise substantially then!!

    I can't see the networks losing substantial profits, what would the shareholders say:BigGrin:

    networks would not lose out as overseas usage would rise. As long as overall cost does not rise it will be great.

    I assume the delay is because "It still requires approval from EU governments."

    One would suspect that some software changed required and that will need to be tested.

    It will do when you finish writing it. Personally I should have done it in smaller modules which don't take 25 years to write :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Relax. When on O2 Travel you can use your mobile in Europe without worrying about huge bills. Talk for longer and use the web without worrying about over spending. Put yourself in control.

    How does O2 Travel work?

    You'll only be charged £1.99 for the days that you use data in Europe.

    There's a daily allowance of 15MB and if you reach this, the service will stop.If you want to use more you can simply text MOREDATA to 23336 to reset your allowance for another £1.99 / 15MB. If you don't, your allowance will be automatically reset at midnight.

    2 quid for 15mb its bloody robbery
