German Telecom Companies
Germany, as member of EU, implement “roam like at home” rules which mean that when you use your mobile phone while travelling outside your home country in any EU country you don’t have to pay any additional roaming charges.
You benefit from these rules when calling (to mobile and fixed phones), sending text messages (SMS) and using data services while abroad. These rules also apply when receiving calls or texts while roaming even if the person you are calling is using a different service provider.
You pay exactly the same price for using these services when travelling in the EU as you would if you were at home.
Mobile users must be aware that outside EU countries, on the ships, cruisers, planes etc. there are still roaming charges and they can be very high. We can help you to avoid them and find best solutions for your needs. german telecoms
