    Thanks for bringing this up
    Hopefully it'll help many here like me, in contract with Three or with plans to join them.
    Worth to mention that...

    Three is to start charging new and upgrading pay monthly and Sim-only customers roaming fees of £2/day to use their monthly allowances in Europe from 23 May 2022. In addition, the mobile provider will ditch a core deal that allowed many customers to use their inclusive minutes, texts and data in 22 non-European destinations and instead charge customers £5/day.

    No existing Three customer is impacted as things stand though as it only affects pay-monthly or Sim-only customers who sign up to a new Three deal or actively renew their contract on or from Friday 1 October. This means you can let your contract roll on from 1 October to avoid the charges (see below for more on this).

    Pay-as-you-go users are not affected by these changes, including its optional pay-as-you-go 'Data Packs' (which are valid for one calendar month from the date of purchase).

    Currently have £5 Unlimited with 2 price increases may as well keep a hold of my sim if I remain on the Unlimited Advance Plan I assume Go Roam would still apply for all the countries listed? Or is it just Europe?

    It applies to all 71 countries supposedly. Three's website not very clear about those on rolling one month contracts

    Opportunity of £7.50/m for unlim data/mins/SMS and (assumed) pre-Oct21 roaming services until Sept 2022 on 12m 3 SIMO for those comfortable to play the game:
    18/m to 3
    96 redemption c/b
    30 TCB
    equiv = 7.50/m for each of the 12 contract months

    Can cancel any recent SIMO within 14days, assuming comfortable with additional credit check hit for another SIMO contract.
