Northern Ireland businesses to benefit from new All-Ireland tariff

Cross-border roaming charges are a real concern for Northern Ireland companies conducting business across the Northern and Southern Ireland border.

Businesses working in border regions are particularly affected by inadvertent roaming, when their mobile phones accidentally connect to a mast in the Republic of Ireland and their domestic calls are then billed as international calls.

In response to this issue, Belfast-based telecoms firm, Barclay Communications has launched a new All-Ireland tariff in partnership with O2 that will make life easier, increase productivity and reduce costs for its Northern Ireland customers.

The company has lobbied relentlessly for the past 5 years on behalf of its customers to make this happen. This new tariff will enable Northern Ireland customers to use their mobile devices as if they were at home, when in the Republic of Ireland.

The tariff will also effectively end the problem of inadvertent roaming experienced by some of its customers based in border areas, such as Newry, Strabane and Castlederg.

MD of Barclay Communications, Britt Megahey said, “We are thrilled to be able to offer the new All-Ireland tariff to our customers. Previously, 20% of a customer’s bill could have been spent on roaming calls.

Britt added, “This new tariff not only gives our customers the opportunity to reduce their costs, it also gives them the security of keeping their bills low, while still being able to use their mobiles and tablets freely in the Republic of Ireland.”
