Roaming

Roaming is when a mobile phone user connects to a network that is not their home network. This can happen domestically, where the user is traveling within their country but connecting to a different carrier's network, or internationally, where the user is connecting to a foreign carrier's network.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Roaming

There are usually charges associated with roaming, which can get expensive depending on how much data or minutes are used. For SMBs, it is essential to be aware of these charges to budget accordingly. Additionally, SMBs should consider getting a roaming plan from their mobile service provider to avoid overage charges. This is especially important for businesses that have employees who travel frequently.
