Protected Media was selected due to its ability to detect and block bots as they become more sophisticated, and to pinpoint the precise source of suspicious traffic with a high level of granularity. Using Protected Media?EU?s solution, Revcontent is able to identify malware and block bots without mistakenly weeding out legitimate traffic.

?EU?Our number one goal is to always protect consumers,?EU? said John Lemp, CEO/Founder of Revcontent. ?EU?Partnering with Protected Media is another aspect of that defense that streamlines our team?EU?s efficiency, ensuring that quality and engaging content is appearing to users.?EU?

O2 announce inclusive European roaming too

Wanna know what’s good? The fact that, on June 15th, you don’t need to worry about using your mobile when you travel out of the UK and into the rest of Europe. Now sure, we don’t know what is truly going to happen when Brexit kicks in, but it’s going to be one insanely tough sell if the networks try to re-implement European roaming in a couple of years.

So, the news then. We’ve already heard that Vodafone decided to get rid of European roaming costs early – you can actually use that now. Meanwhile, EE are dropping European roaming charges on June 15th and now O2 have announced that they’ll be doing the same thing.

O2 announce inclusive European roaming too

But wait – let’s not forget that UK networks have to do this anyway on June 15th. EU law has abolished roaming fees and it kicks in on that day.

For O2 customers things extend further, and some non-EU countries are included too. These include Iceland, Switzerland and Monaco. The O2 press release states that..

Customers on O2’s Pay Monthly, Pay As You Go and Business tariffs will be able to use their inclusive allowances while travelling in Europe. So while the weather will hopefully be different to the UK, using their phone won’t be.

If you’re on O2, you won’t need to do a thing. No need to worry about crazy roaming charges.

Of course, it’ll take a couple of years for some random plonkers to realise. They’ll be on holiday saying..

Ooo, don’t use your phone! It’ll cost a MILLION POUNDS !!! Turn it off! Now… let me go and sign some travellers cheques.

You know who they are. They’re the people who still have a tax disc on the windscreen of their car and they get confused by toll booths.

Where was I ? Oh yes. The countries for Pay Monthly and Business customers include Austria, Azores, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canary Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Gibraltar (UK), Greece, Guadeloupe, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malta, Martinique, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Reunion Islands, Romania, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin (French), San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands and Vatican City. Destinations outside the EU/EEA are also included – Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Monaco and Switzerland.

If your’e on Pay As You Go, then unfortunately Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Monaco and Switzerland are NOT included in this European Zone.

You’ll be getting a text to explain all this shortly if you’re a customer.

  • Three add two new destinations to their Feel at Home network

    You know Three. They’re the network who are exclusively ranging the Lenovo P2. We reviewed the P2 and were properly impressed. Three are also the network covering 98% of the population and carry 35% of the UK’s mobile data.

    They’re also famous for their Feel At Home offering. It basically lets you use your phone just as you would in the UK but in places like the USA, which is where we tested it. Sure, there’s a few caveats, but it’ll give you satnav, Google search and you’ll be able to do your social media business.Three add two new destinations to their Feel at Home network

    Today Three are announcing the end of roaming charges in two more destinations – Singapore and Brazil. It happens on the same day that other UK networks are abolishing just EU roaming charges – June 15th 2017.

    If you’re a Three customer then it now means you’ll get 60 counties with no roaming charges. That’s 60 countries around the world where you don’t need to pay a penny extra to use your Three UK mobile handset.

    Three are keen to point out that, whilst they (and other UK mobile networks) are enabling free roaming in EU counties on June 15th, Three have actually provided a lot of free roaming destinations for a number of years. Not only that, but their Feel At Home system is available in 17 destinations outside of Europe. You can even use it in Australia.

    CEO of Three, Dave Dyson, tells us..

    We are doing this proactively for the benefit of our customers and not because regulators are forcing us to do it. That’s what sets us apart and this approach means we will always be ahead of our competitors when it comes to fair overseas roaming. I am proud that our customers can now use their phones as if they were in the UK in more than 80% of the destinations they travel to. Our ambition is greater and we are moving quickly towards a goal of 100% of overseas travel, so our customers can stay connected and enjoy the freedom of using their phones whilst they’re abroad.

    Meanwhile, Ernest Doku, telecoms expert at uSwitch.com, has highlighted the fact that Three have lowered the international calling charges for Pay As You Go customers. Now it’ll cost just 3p a minute in 20 countries.

    These often extortionate fees charged by providers can quickly chomp through allowances or bundles, acting as the nudge for consumers to remove that much needed cap.

    If Three can keep reducing their roaming rates while also extending the number of destinations covered, this could be a seriously competitive move in a market where differentiation is key.

    Full details are available below, or you can head to Three.co.uk for more information.

    Three scraps excessive roaming charges in more global destinations than any other network
    – Three maintains its roaming leadership position by adding more destinations outside of Europe bringing the total to 60.

    – Singapore and Brazil to join long haul destinations where Three customers can use their phone abroad without fear of being hit with bill shock.

    – The network is also making international calling simpler, fairer and better value for its Pay As You Go customers with direct call charges dropping to just 3p a minute to 20 countries by June 2017.

    Three has today announced that its customers will be able to use their phones abroad at no extra cost in a further two worldwide destinations – Singapore and Brazil – from June 15, bringing its total destinations to 60.

    As the network continues its assault on unfair roaming charges, specifically in destinations outside the EU, these new destinations keep Three positioned as the global leader in mobile roaming.

    Other networks are playing catch-up as EU regulations force them into freeing travellers from unfair roaming charges in Europe from June 15. Roaming charges are a rip off and Three continues to tackle the issue head on by opening up further global destinations to phone users at no extra cost and now covers 82% of total trips abroad worldwide – more than any other network anywhere and including places where Brits actually love to travel to.

    Dave Dyson, Chief Executive at Three, said: “We are committed to unlocking unfair roaming charges for British travellers, not just in the EU but across the world. Our announcement today is testament to this, as we extend our popular “Feel At Home” service with two additional worldwide destinations, taking our total to 60 with 17 of those being outside of Europe.”

    Three was the first network to scrap roaming charges back in 2013, allowing customers to use their allowances at no extra cost. Over time it’s continued to add more destinations to the list, not just across Europe but also popular rest-of-world places, including the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.

    Dave Dyson continues: “We are doing this proactively for the benefit of our customers and not because regulators are forcing us to do it. That’s what sets us apart and this approach means we will always be ahead of our competitors when it comes to fair overseas roaming. I am proud that our customers can now use their phones as if they were in the UK in more than 80% of the destinations they travel to. Our ambition is greater and we are moving quickly towards a goal of 100% of overseas travel, so our customers can stay connected and enjoy the freedom of using their phones whilst they’re abroad.”

    The addition of Brazil and Singapore are in response to emerging and growing travel trends. Currently 450,0001 Brits visit Singapore each year and, since the Olympics, more travellers are making the trip to Brazil, with nearly 200,0002 visits in the last year alone.

    Three has also significantly overhauled its latest international calling offering for Pay As You Go customers by making it just 3p a minute to call directly to both landline and mobile numbers in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China. By June, a further 16 countries will be added to this list.

    In a further move to simplify things for customers, this new PAYG international calling service is available without the complexity of having to remember the country pre-fix dialling codes. So you can now simply phone the number abroad without any prefix whatsoever.
