Hi all,

It seems Lyca Mobile UK is choosing to deliberately ignore the spirit and wording of the recently implemented roaming regulations. Checking at http://www.lycamobile.co.uk/en/eu-roaming-is-changing?awc=6021_1497910292_6a0789e4709773da9fbf38c4d06a516b you will see that they state bundles cannot be used for EU roaming and incoming calls while roaming in the EU are subject to a 200 minutes per month fair use policy.

Both of these are a clear contravention of the regulations. I suspect they will be only one of many networks to try to sidestep the regulations.

Dave

Ofcom and possibly trading standards could help with that.

Update

Just checked the Polish site and come across a similar restriction.  Local packages are not available when roaming.

There must be a pan European regulator that will be able to enforce changes.

Not very surprising IMO. Existing customers get unlimited calls & texts free with any data plan and they have sold 500MB for 5, instead of 1GB for 10.

All networks will haggle Cheesy

jagga303, somehow I'm not surprised you've taken yet another sim despite of probably having dozens of active sims already 😝

Having 15 sims myself I decided not to take this on 😋

Lol. Na mate, this was only my 6th sim.

Well done you :0
I managed to sort mine out today. Gave them a call and they just asked if I wanted a new sim or transfer a payg sim, i chose a new sim. They also asked me how many sims on this deal would I like and I just needed the one.
Hopefully, the discount will continue forever.
The last EE glitch at 0.00 per month which I got 2 sims, the discount is still being applied, nearly 2 years later.
So looking good.
Well done to all that got it.

Got mine sorted. PAYG sim became PAYM and there is an ongoing 20 loyalty discount applied making it 4.99 per month, basically "forever". It has to be about the best deal I've ever heard of anybody getting from any network, especially considering the roaming covers USA & Canada etc (although I'll probably never go).

Thanks for posting, I might never have noticed otherwise. Hopefully some others made use of it too.

Edit: I called up to see if I could migrate a PAYG to be a second PAYM line on this deal. It went without a hitch, done within 5 minutes and showing on my EE with the 20 loyalty discount.
