SGA covers services too.  A telephone call is a service.  Data is a service.  Money exchanged hands with O2, not with Brittany Ferries so I have to go to O2.  Anyway, it's with the financial ombudsman now because O2 only refunded half the money so I'll see what they say about it.  


That was a goodwill gesture, they don't have to refund you at all, if you used your phone on another network that is down to you.

Just be happy that half was recredited for you. Anything else is going to be very difficult and not worth the effort. You need to take it up with the network you were connected to.

Re: Ferry roaming charges - also relevant for cruise ships

[ Edited ]

When I was on DFDS from Dover to France and Vice Versa, i was connected to there mobile network.  I got a SMS from O2 about 30Mins into the journey regarding SMS and phone charges.  It didn't howevere mention Data Charges which puzzled me.

 

i always have my roaming data of until I on dry land in EU and connected to a proper EU network too, but I can tell you there there was no mention on the ship at all of the mobile network etc.  no paperwork, no nothing.

 

differnt point.

 

When end flying with Virgin Atlantic to USA. I was able to connect to the mast in the aircraft once above 10,000 feet.  Cabin crew made the announcement that they don't have data on the aircraft, but calls and SMS are considerable more and should check with the network before using it.  I did get a SMS in 5 mins advising me of charges.  I did send a couple of SMS just to try it out, its very strange 

lol sending a SMS over the ocean.  I didn't make calls as it was too expensive lol.  Only 8 people at any one time can use the service, so it was like hit and miss for a SMS to go lol

The 747 Virgin plane didn't have wifi 😔. We was change at last min from a Airbus a330 which did. But hey. I was still able to keep update with news etc by using there onboard system.  Quite good really.

Re: Ferry roaming charges - also relevant for cruise ships

Nearly all Emirates fleet now have wifi. It's turned on once the plane reaches cruising height. 10MB free....yeah, useless but you buy 500MB with a credit/debit card for 1.00GBP, enough to last for two 7 hour flights and speeds are around 4Mbps down and 1Mbp up. Perfectly adequate for my needs and considering there are 300plus passengers it's a great service.

I emailed a picture to my son taken whilst coming in to Bangkok, amazing what you can do on these flights now.
