3 Add More Free Countries


Recommended Posts

3 network have just told me they have added the US to countries where I can use my pay monthly contract to make calls and use the internet without any roaming charges. I believe this now makes nine countries.

Wow - that should shake things up a bit. Not heard anything about this but will take a look at them when my contract with orange is up :)

I still buy a localised national pay as you go card for my phone when abroad, I make calls from Spain to the UK at the moment cheaper than using Skype computer to landline prices! All mobile charges within Europe are to be priced at the same rate regardless of Geographical location within 2 years anyway, at last we have found something that the European parliament have got right.

I like where this is going. Internet access is becoming more like a utility every day. I can see the day where an ethernet port and Internet access looks just as homely as electricity socket or faucet on new builds.

When did taps become faucets?

I needed to ting Spain in September and was amaze to find out that calling most European countries land lines on my Giff Gaff mobile cost only 2p a minute. Much cheaper than calls to landlines in the Uk ( pay and go phone). It does not work the other way though as calls back to the Uk are 25p a minute.

I do usually dislike Americanisms so shot myself in the foot there! :blush:

 

I had “bitcoin faucet” on my mind from an article I had just read.

If any of you are Daily Telegraph readers this Saturday one does have a comprehensive list of what roaming charges currently are along with the other larger providers confirmation of rate changes. .downwards. .Look in the Travel Section.

Because I have watched a lot of US produced films. Just because the colonials have changed some of the terms we use does not mean that we have to do the same.

Faucet is English from Middle Ages and actually meant barrel rather than tap. .......

Pity I'm not going to any of those countries - never mind, I'm happy with 3 anyway and as they add more countries, sooner or later there will be one I am going to :)

Have you ever read "Mother Tongue" by Bill Bryson. I suggest you do - it's very enlightening on the subject of the two countries separated by a common language.
