Keeping connected abroad

18 March 2016

Do you or your employees travel internationally for business and use a smartphone to work remotely?

Perhaps you take your work smartphone with you when holidaying abroad to keep in touch with the office?

For many modern businesses, it's essential to ensure that colleagues can remain in contact when working or travelling outside the UK.

Although mobile roaming within the EU is cheaper than it used to be, there's still a risk of running up an unexpectedly high bill, if you or your employees aren't careful.

Business travellers may also be vulnerable to 'bill-shock' when using their smartphones outside the EU, where voice and data roaming charges can be significantly higher, particularly if they need to dial into lengthy conference calls, or download large data files while on business trips abroad.

Here's some useful information to help you and your employees avoid giving your company a financial headache when using a work smartphone overseas.
