Yes I am sure there will be ways of farting about with sims or limited and throttled data sims etc. Thats what most of us have been doing for years. It is however extremely frustrating and annoying. No big deal for most of you I am sure but just when we were on the brink of the EU flattening charges EU wide. It just makes so much sense. We work and play all over Europe now, why the hell with modern technology should a phone call from Normandy cost me more than a phone call from Norwich? To me it signifies what the EU, Free Movement and the single market is all about. Level playing field for business and EU wide negotiated deals. It doesnt work for everything but when it does its beneficial for all.
It reminds me of when the last company I worked for was bought out and became part of a group of 22 similar companies. Whilst there were a few disadvantages, the advantages far outweighed them. Much better group purchasing power, much better global support, group working standards and practices, all sorts but we still maintained a level of autonomy. Everyone grew stronger.
These reasons are yet another example of why we should retain single market access at all costs. Of course for some the price of getting rid of the dreaded "Free Movement" is worth sacrificing just about anything for.
