All networks have committed to maintaining the current roaming conditions after Brexit.

As per the article you link to; Three are the only network to explicitly state they won't bring back charges. O2, EE and Voda have said they have no plans to, but will wait and see what happens.

Also UK Gov stance is that worst case EU roaming charges will be capped at £45.00 per month if they are re-introduced.

Be assured that if Three still offer free roaming, they all will.

No, I disagree.

Three are a disruptor who are bank-rolled by a Hong Kong/Chinese billionaire that is happy to spend, and their smaller customer base means they may be swallow the charges when other networks can't. Bear in mind they offer free roaming in USA, Austrailia etc to all their customers when no other network does. They also offer unlimited data, which no other network did until Voda introduced their new 5G tariffs, and have also said all their customers will get 5G at no extra cost, which is again different from the other 3 big boys. 

Ultimately, if the EU networks decide to impose roaming charges on UK networks, be assured they will be passed on to us consumers.

And I think a £45.00 cap is reasonable all things considered.

Three are less of a disrupter these days in the UK market than they were in earlier days and if the other networks decide to get rid of free EU roaming if we leave the EU then I'd expect 3 would eventually follow suit too.

 

Three took a stance with mid contract price rises. That didn't last long!

 

As for whether this will be an issue come November 1st probably best to not get too political here but I fully expect us to still be members of the EU on November 1st just like we were on April 1st
