Foreign downloading ban for 3 Mobile customers


by David Allen

Billing for roaming charges abroad can be such a complex issue and sometimes a seriously bad point for mobile broadband surfers who want to take their laptops abroad and just generally use the internet as they would if they were at home.

This problem has caused the European Union to threaten to impose legal measures to make mobile phone companies cut the amount they charge their customers for roaming on overseas networks.

But rather than get caught up in some sophisticated legal minefield, the mobile operator 3 has decided to ban all of their customers from downloading data through their mobile broadband service abroad and therefore save the nasty shock of a massive bill upon their return.

This ban will only affect 3’s dongle users and not mobile phone users.

However customers can specifically request the ban to be lifted, but the company may place a credit limit on the account.
