Big changes are coming on 1 July 2014 with a right to choose a different operator for roaming and further cuts in the maximum permitted roaming charges to EUR0.20/Mb and 0.19/minute (ex VAT, currently 0.45/Mb and 0.24/min). It's nearly getting to the point where it's only worth the heaviest users switching SIM cards with all the registration and redirecting phone calls and so on that it involves, unless you're going outside the EU. (ObTiming: and UKIP voted against this too )
