I took out an o2 contract with the o2 Travel Inclusive feature giving me use of my phone in the USA, Canada etc. I understand the limit of 1220 mins and texts per day but I think it unfair that you throttle the speeds when roaming abroad. Three and Vodafone do not appear to do this. You have to scour the T&C's to even seen any mention of this. What are o2 doing about lifting the speed restrictions when abroad. It's painfully slow.

Every network has issues with Data Speeds in the US, i have roamed on all 4 networks whilst in in various states from Hawaii, via Nevada and many others Florida.
The speeds i got on Ohau in Hawai'i where quicker than in New York or Los Angeles...
Never had any Issues in Toronto
The only reason i can think of is that the US networks prioritise their own customers above roaming customers. I nearly once got our US Network partner to admit this..
What networks are you roaming on, and what countries?
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini
I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World
We are all customers and dont have access to any o2 accounts

@Ponty79 O2 will do nothing about lifting restrictions on roaming speeds. Your best option is to get a local PAYG sim from AT&T or T-Mobile If you want to use data on your phone in the US.
