Tesco Mobile will be letting customers in the UK use their mobile phones abroad for free, without incurring any remaining charges. The UK mobile network will unlock free access to and from 31 European countries, but only for a limited time through summer.
As noted by Engadget, the initiative – titled "Home from Home" – will only be available to eligible customers between May 23 and September 3. Both pay monthly and pay-as-you-go customers will be able to board the free roaming train within the timeframe. Once Home from Home has ended, consumers won't have to wait long before the EU finally smashes roaming charges into oblivion.
Countries supported by Home from Home include Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canary Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
