Three scraps data roaming fees for customers visiting the US

Three has extended its ‘Feel At Home’ initiative, scrapping roaming rates when customers travel to the US and allowing them to simply make use of their inclusive minutes and data.

Available to all of Three’s pay monthly, pay-as-you-go and SIM-only customers, the new Fell At Home roaming options will see the networks’ users forgo costly roaming bills, simply using their current plan’s limitations as if they were still in the UK.

Simply requiring users to have international roaming options activated on their account, those exceeding their inclusive minutes, texts and data packages whilst in the US will now also benefit from reduced roaming rates.

With a number of countries already covered by Three’s Feel At Home offer, the network has today added the US, Sri Lanka and Macau to an 11 strong list of travel destinations which also includes the Republic of Ireland, Denmark, Hong Kong, Australia and Italy.

“Roaming charges have been a worry for people for too long,” Dave Dyson, Three’s Chief Executive said. “We want our customers to make the most of our network offering and their devices whether home or abroad. We believe this further extension to our Feel at Home offering provides further value and hopefully will continue to reduce fears around roaming.”

Requiring no effort from users, the Feel At Home options will automatically activate when handsets are switched on in compatible countries, such as the US.

Yesterday, Three confirmed that its 4G services had started a slow and gradual rollout across the UK, with just a few thousand customers given the first nod of the high-speed network.
