Vodafone launches new Europe-wide roaming charges model

October 3, 2002

Lisbon, 3 October 2002 – Since 30 September, Vodafone Telecel customers have been able to use a new charging model for the roaming service. Known as Eurocall Platinum, it is a development of Eurocall, the pioneering service launched by the Vodafone Group in 2001 which lowered and simplified roaming charges in Europe.

Eurocall Platinum has been designed to meet the needs of customers who make heavy use of the roaming service in Europe. For a monthly subscription of €10, these customers can benefit from a reduced rate of €0.65 a minute, representing significant savings from the normal roaming call charges.

Eurocall Platinum is already available to Vodafone Telecel customers in the following countries: Spain, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Greece, Holland, Ireland and Sweden. The new rate applies to calls made on participating Vodafone networks to any of the Western European countries listed below. Like Eurocall, Eurocall Platinum is a flat rate, irrespective of the time of day.

The launch of this new model is a further example of Vodafone’s capacity to roll out services on a European scale, to the direct benefit of customers.
