The company that this week announced it would make the Nokia N97 available on its network has unveiled a new pricing structure for its international roaming.

According to 3 Mobile, it will now not only provide users of the device access to free calls when using the Skype service, but will also offer the cheapest roaming fees of any UK carrier.

The group – which also offers devices such as the INQ1 social networking handset among its range – will begin charging calls between the EU and UK at 34p per minute.

It added text messages sent when in these European countries will now be priced at 11p and calls received while abroad will cost 15p.

SMS’ messages that drop into the consumers’ inbox while on their travels will remain free and its mobile broadband users can utilise their dongles at a rate of £1.25 per MB across the EU.

“Whether you’re headed for the Algarve in July, hitting the Alps in November, or taking a city break in March, all 3 customers can expect consistent, simple pricing 12 months of the year,” 3 Mobile added.
