T-Mobile UK Reveal Cheaper EU Mobile Broadband Roaming Prices

Tuesday, Jun 19th, 2012 (7:29 am) - Score 944

Mobile operator T-Mobile UK (Everything Everywhere) has today introduced its new internet and broadband Travel Boosters, which are designed to make it cheaper to use your Mobile Broadband connection while roaming around within Europe and other countries outside of the EU.

The new upgrades, which reflect Europe’s strict new roaming regulation (details), are split into Internet Travel Boosters (for Smartphones) and Broadband Travel Boosters (for all Mobile Broadband [USB Dongle etc.] devices).


Prices start from £1, which would give you 3MB (MegaBytes) of data usage for both boosters when roaming within Europe. But the cost for 3MB of usage goes up to £5 if you’re in the USA, Turkey or India / £10 for Canada, Jamaica / £20 for Chile, Hong Kong and £25 for Qatar, Cuba, Brazil. Bigger bundles are available at a lower cost per MB (e.g. £10 gets you 50MB when within the EU).

Ben Fritsch, Head of Propositions at TMobile UK, said:

This year, 90% of all our new3 pay monthly customers have opted for a smartphone, which proves the ever increasing demand from consumers to be connected while on the go. We are really proud to be the first UK operator to ensure our customers can continue to be connected, anywhere in the world – and have the peace of mind they’ll never come back to an unexpected bill.”

The data allowance itself will last for 30 days or until the data has been used, while the cost of the bundle will either be added to the customer’s monthly bill or deducted from their pay as you go credit.

By comparison Vodafone’s EuroTraveller service gives Pay Monthly customers, including business travellers on standard price plans, visiting their Europe Zone the ability to spend more time talking, texting and surfing the web for £3 Per Day.

Elsewhere O2’s new O2Travel package 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.
