Ariela: It is! You don’t need to worry about anything, just keep on doing your stuff as usual. And yes, no charges or unified charges are just another advantage within the EU.

Re: Money is everything
@Susan Much easier than swapping on SIM cards each time you cross into another country, not to mention the extra charges that sometimes are incurred in doing so.

Re: Money isn't everything
@afwriter. Good point. I was wondering the same thing. I suspect that government in other countries especially third world countries are not as efficient as the U.S. government. I also suspect that don't have the same laws and regulations in place. This combined with other challenges can cause a delay in implementing a new initiative.

By services to multi-dwelling units is a good revenue generator. I don't these types of buildlings will ever go away. Telekom Austria moving into services such as smart technology is a great move. Although I am not a fan of smart technology I will consumer interest for it will continue to grow in the residential and commercial markets.

Fiber is a good industry to invest in. I am glad that Telekom Austria also recognizes the need to provide services to underserved and unserved areas. These is an untapped market that has a huge revenue potential.

Hopefully Telekom Austria can expand the customer base into other countries. I'm not sure how difficult it is to expand in foreign countries. By expanding into hot industries they should continue to grow and meet their target goals.

Re: Telekom Austria
@Susan Fourtane, I agree. Companies have to continually expand and grow to remain competitive. However, companies have to remain focused on their mission abeit it may change as the company grows and ventures into new arenas.

Re: Money is everything
Ariella — Exactly. As soon as you cross a border you are automatically connected to a local service provider. You don’t have to do anything. You continue using your devices and all your services as usual at no extra cost. This benefit might end for the UK, thought, thanks to Brexit. But thanks to these crossborder agreements in the EU, Telekom Austria’s expansion is easier, even beneficial for some regions.

Afwriter — In your case, it would have been more convenient and cheaper for you to get a pre-paid local sim in Spain with the combo of your choice that you can buy from plenty of places, including the airport, and pop it into your phone.
