Mobile operator Orange UK (Everything Everywhere) has introduced an enhanced range of cheaper Mobile Broadband data roaming bundles for customers whom intend to continue using the internet while travelling around Europe and the rest of the world.
Each of the new bundles give a set amount of usage (MegaBytes) for a period of 30 days, with prices starting at £3 for 30MB. Those who don’t pick a bundle will instead pay 59p per MegaByte on the operator’s pay-as-you-go (payg) packages or 69.6p for contract users. The new prices were actually “launched earlier this month” but some were not widely publicised until now.
Orange UK has also introduced a special 7-day bundle for £15 until 5th August 2012 (£20 thereafter), which gives customers travelling within the EU access to 50 minutes of voice calls, 30MB data and 100 texts.
By comparison O2’s new O2Travel bundle offers £1.99 for 25MB Per Day, while Three UK charges £5 Per Day (or £1.28 per MB if you’re a pay-as-you-go customer) for largely unrestricted Mobile Broadband roaming.
