Digital trends reports that the government minister in charge of overseeing the U.K. leaving the European Union has said that even in the event of a “no-deal” Brexit, the recently introduced free data roaming and reduced charging plans will stay in place. Dominic Raab is the Brexit secretary. He has said several carriers have already agreed not to re-introduce charges. the government wants to force other operators to do the same. Expensive roaming charges were scrapped in June last year. At the time, however, there was confusion over what would happen after Brexit, and concern that networks would back out of the scheme. Currently, all EU citizens — which includes people living in the U.K. — pay the same amount for calls and messages made abroad as they do at home. Additionally, all mobile plans in the U.K. include the ability to use included data and minutes throughout the European Union. These are EU laws, and therefore will not be part of U.K. law after March 29, 2019.
