Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has said mobile phone users will continue to face unfair roaming charges ‘if the north is dragged out of the EU’. roaming“Mobile phone roaming charges are set to be abolished across the European Union next year but customers in the north may not feel the benefit of it,” she stated. “If Britain succeeds in dragging the North out of the EU against the democratic wishes of the people we will continue to be faced with these unfair charges. “Roaming charges are one of the negative realities of partition faced by thousands of people who live along the border and who travel across the border every day to work and study. “They are one of the many ridiculous impositions on the Irish people due to partition and there was a huge amount of relief in border areas that it looked like they were about to be abolished.
