  1. Yes, another of the flagship promises to the gullible has bitten the dust. What they were told would happen is now happening with a vengeance. Now that the honeymoon period is over mobile charges are shooting up to compensate for the loss of revenue, so the only people to now benefit are a highly select number of highly mobile people, and you can guess what social group they are over represented in. Personally I've seen my monthly PAYG charges bumped on both my continental SIMs. But it's worse: you used to be able to buy a SIM card without a costly monthly contract, but when I walked into a phone shop recently expecting to be able to buy one for occasional calls on a new smartwatch, I was practically told to take a walk. that's despite having all the necessary documents, ID cards, and tax certificates that continental bureaucracy require. I eventually acquired one by reading loads of foreign smallprint on a double up scheme. This involved several trips to two shops, and an over the counter confrontation which involved calls to the network for permission - in fact the card was practically thrown at me. It's still not enabled though! You can't believe a word of EU propaganda, and in particular you can't believe a word of what is appearing in the EU compliant continental press. People have been led to believe that the UK is in total crisis, and Brits are deeply regretting their mistake. This really is Orwellian in its implications.
