    I just hope they limit their 4G signal to be within their internationally-recognised territorial waters, otherwise there might be problems. (Although I'm not sure if Vodafone UK have the wherewithall to put a basestation on a battleship.)

    Another difference

    Is that, unlike the UK / France / Ireland, you don't have roaming charges to contend with.

    An issue with the English channel is that if the signal from France and England over lap to much, you can end up jumping onto the roaming network. It already happens on the coast quite lot.
