    Data roaming cap that fits only in the EU.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 01 Jul 2013, 11:26 am

    Holidaymakers should not be lulled into a false sense of security by new data roaming limits outside the EU charges are hefty.

    Holidaymakers using their mobile phones in the European Union no longer need to fear sky-high bills on their return, thanks to a new cap on roaming charges which comes into force tomorrow. However, in other popular holiday destinations browsing just five web pages could cost as much as 8.

    Read more about this from The Guardian HERE




    As more and more Brits go out of the EU for holidays these days I thought that it might be a good idea to remind these people that "roaming" data charges are still very high outwith the EU.

    Be warned !

    Fine if you can afford it.

    People who can afford to holiday in other places around the world than the EU must have the money to be able to use their roaming abilities too.

    I certainly don't and I will take your advice Paps.

    Doesn't apply to me as I can not afford a holiday in Spain, never mind in Barbados.
