Frequent business travellers using mobiles abroad, will be very aware of how roaming charges have changed in Europe, yet not fast enough for most of us. Furthermore while travelling in Europe your business will no longer be suffering from outrageous roaming costs, yet for global travellers thats still another matter. However Europhiles don’t think your safe ! As we still have to pass through BREXIT, remember the June 2017 roaming agreement is an EU directive?
The good news is there are alternative solutions to control costs and retain communications for Global travellers and Brit’s with European business, especially relevant as the advantages of the directive may well be lost post Brexit. With a smartphone app however, the provision of Network function Virtualisation or ‘NFV’ utilised correctly solves your issues. While NFV is a model other cloud telecoms providers are still struggling with, we utilise where required without overcomplicating the model.
