New reductions in data roaming across Europe were announced today but you can still pick up a hefty bill if you’re not careful. Rates for a megabyte of data are lowered to 16pMB. However, heavy usage could still mean a mobile bill that’s bigger than the cost of your flight! Dataroam continues to deliver incredibly low data rates from as little as £0.04pMB across the EU, especially useful for those who thrive on social media, audio/visual streaming and heavy usage. Whilst reduced rates and data charges are tumbling they still represent a heavy price to pay for frequent users. Even with the EU caps a 1GB bundle of data still works out at £169.00. Using dataroam solutions a 1 GB bundle of data costs as little as £39.00 for a 30 day period of usage equating to only £0.04pMB – that’s still a saving worth packing before you go.
Significant reductions in mobile roaming charges across Europe were announced today but you can still get hit with a huge bill if you don’t take precautions. Call rates have lowered to 15p/min and to 4p/min to receive a call. However, heavy usage on making or receiving calls could still mean a mobile bill that’s bigger than the cost of your holiday! 0044 still beats the roaming caps hands down with outgoing voice calls in the EU from as little as 3p/min and still offering free incoming calls. Whilst reduced call rates and data charges are tumbling they still represent a heavy price to pay for frequent travellers. Even with the new EU caps a 20 minute call from Europe can cost you £3.00 whereas with the 0044 solutions you’re still only paying 60 pence.
