another pro about this: Switzerland and Croatia are both put in the EU zone even though no EU members...

Croatia will be an EU member from 1st July 2013.

Non-EEA countries and territories that are surrounded by or have a close connection with EEA countries (e.g. Switzerland, Andorra, Channel Islands) are treated by many UK networks as EU. It doesn't surprise me that E-Plus is doing this as well.

I'd be surprised if Regulation (EU) No 531/2012 wouldn't apply to small parts of the Swiss networks' coverage area. For example, are the Swiss networks responsible for providing mobile coverage in Büsingen (Germany) and Campione d'Italia? The latter is part of the Ticino +41 91 area code despite being in Italy. Given that the home networks can't distinguish between roaming in Switzerland and these small parts of the European Union, I imagine they would have to apply the price caps to all roaming on Swiss networks.

in Büsingen you can get all 4 german networks, i guess in campione that would be topographically more challanging

In Campione, and part of Ticino, you can receive the Italian carriers (through overspill...)

In both Büsingen and Campione d'Italia, it depends on whether the Swiss networks actually have transmitters there, i.e. on EU territory. If they have, then roaming there would probably be subject to Regulation (EU) No 531/2012.

even if - i doubt that any billing system of a carrier could cope with that...
