Vodafone UK Launch 4G Mobile Broadband Roaming in 4 EU Countries

Mobile operator Vodafone UK has announced that customers of their Red 4G plans (including business travellers) will now also be able to make use of “ultrafastMobile Broadband connectivity when roaming across Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

The move, which is similar to EE’s recently launched 4G roaming service (here), will be complemented by a new offer that allows any Pay monthly customer (4G or not) who opts-in to the EuroTraveller add-on to take their existing UK voice minutes, texts and data allowances with them when they are travelling anywhere in Vodafone’s Europe Zone. The service costs just £2 a day (inc. VAT) VAT until the end of August.

Customers on the Red plans benefit from UK unlimited calls, texts and a 3GB data allowance, which would thus carry over if they also adopt EuroTraveller. However those who choose not to opt into EuroTraveller will be charged Europe Zone rates, which work out at 24.5p per minute for making calls (7.1p receiving), 8.1p per text and 45.9p per MegaByte (MB) of data.

NOTE: People using the standard Europe Zone rates are automatically opted in to a monthly Internet spending limit (i.e. a cap to prevent “bill shocks” of £42.50).

    Pity the 2 pound a day thing is only until End of August but at least It will cover all of summer for people.

    It is a real slap in the face to all Brits by Vodafone when they continue to rip off everyone here while they offer these kind of monthly deals abroad: http://www.vodafone.pt/main/Particulares/BandaLargaMovel/tarifarios/blm_pospaga/

      Mark,

      We are all grown adults here and a bit of honest swearing never killed anyone!

      Have you joined the dark side? You know that I say it like it is and my honest comment now does not have the impact that it should have had.

      I fully understand that the site is yours but silencing your loyal readers is not the way to go no matter what crap they come out with within reason.

      This is the slippery slope to 1984…

  3. I would give my left arm for a half decent roaming service for travelling to Turkey. It seems with all the EU regulation coming in, the Telco’s see the holiday destination as a good money spinner for anyone silly enough to try and use data out there. It’s a shame as there is a Vodafone TR but it doesn’t look like they take advantage of their business ties.
