What is Global Networks

Further to my recent post on loss of data roaming when in Norway; when my wife's Moto G was switched on in Norway we had the message: " Welcome to Global Networks. Calls on Pay and Go to UK costs £2 per minute. Receiving a call costs £2 per minute. Data costs £7.20 per MB. Enjoy your trip"

 

How did that happen? O2 said we can use our phones in Europe just as we do in UK.

Your phone will latch onto the strongest signal it sees so if it was stronger than a regular mobile signal it would connect to it.

Sounds like a ships network rather than a normal roaming network.
Calls on these satellite systems are horrendously expensive.

Hi @Tafia, let us know if that would explain it or if you have any further questions?

 

We also have a quick guide topic made by our member @darrengf that gives a bit more info on the cruise liners / aircraft charges. slight_smile
