EU-Roaming Costs Free of Charge?
This roaming charge deal was meant to plus-up profits. If you drove across the border into France (from Germany).....your cellphone company could tack on some nifty extra costs.
A lot of Germans used to whine about roaming costs to Spain or Italy....when they took their vacations..
So the EU just ordered the companies to stop it.
This week I noticed at the Bahnhof in Wiesbaden this new sign. The cellphone company (Vodafone) put up brilliant advertising to say that EU-roaming is now inklusive and "free". To be honest, it's not a thing that they volunteer to do.....they were ordered to stop EU-roaming costs. Yet, in the ad, they will pretend to the naive German idiots.....they are offering this EU-roaming deal....free of charge.
How many Germans will fall for this? I'd take a guess fifty percent. That's how disconnected Germans are from the news and grasping the world around them.
