Three cheers for 3. Well, kinda. Earlier this week the boss of 3 in Ireland scrapped roaming charges for its punters while they're out and about in Britain or Northern Ireland.

3 Ireland MD Robert Finnegan told ElectricNews.Net that the decision to shelve roaming charges was based on customer feedback.

"We looked at trends of our customers, many of whom travel to Britain regularly. Roaming charges are unfair, so we decided to tackle the issue by eliminating them," he said.
ha ha - "based on customer feedback" - nothing to do with copying the opposition then

"Roaming charges are unfair" - Well I suppose he can always find a new job.

... but ... ""3 UK cannot do the same offer at this time as the cost for 3 UK to provide international roaming to its customers whilst in Ireland is higher," explained a 3 UK spokesman. "

Are Vodafone UK and O2 UK reciprocating namely are they dropping roaming fees in the Republic of Ireland?

They are not.

The second of those links above has a quote that 3 had spent time talking to ComReg (the Irish regulator), and we've seen elsewhere that the Irish are driving hard at roaming charges.

I'd just love to hear a secret conversation between the boss of 3 Ireland with some of his counterparts in other countries about why he said roaming charges are unfair
