Three have today announced a fantastic new roaming deal which gets the internet in the hands of more people who travel within the EU and like here in the UK there is no need to worry about limits.
For £5 you get 24 hours internet access….and best of all it is All-You-Can-Eat!. Yes you did read that right… you can now be on holiday and download apps, upload pictures, tweet, use maps or any other internet service you like, happy knowing you wont pay a penny more than £5 for the day of use!.
The only condition is there is no tethering allowed but for most people, myself included, being able to use everything else for a single charge more than makes up for this.
On a personal note I am blown away by this new service from Three, normally going abroad in the past I have had to turn data off and only use WiFi when back in the hotel, missing out on all the news throughout the day…. finally this is no more.
Check below for the full press release from Three and start packing your bags for that summer holiday…..and this time you can share your photos!
THREE OPENS UP THE INTERNET IN THE EU
New Euro Internet Pass makes the fear of using data on your smartphone in the EU a thing of the past
June 13th 2012: From today, Three Pay Monthly Contract customers will be able to enjoy the benefits of the internet on their smartphones whilst holidaying in the EU without the fear of running up a massive bill.
For just a fiver a day, customers can tweet, tag, browse, book, update, upload, search, send, and Google as much as they want without worrying about how much they’re spending.
So, if you’re trying to find that perfect Pizzeria, you can just Google it and track it down on a map. If you can’t remember the word for donkey in Spanish, download a translation app. Or, if you really can’t resist finding out what’s going on at work, you can pick up your emails whenever you like and wherever you are. But best of all, you can make everyone back home insanely jealous with loads of gloaty “look where I am right now” type status updates and photos.
Thomas Malleschitz, Marketing Director at Three said, “We love the mobile internet at Three and we want our customers to enjoy it on holiday as much as they do at home. The Euro Internet Pass gives our customers the freedom to use the internet in the EU without having to think about how many megabytes or gigabytes they are using or where the nearest Wifi hotspot is.
We’ve been campaigning for lower data roaming rates and welcome the new regulation from Europe. These changes promote competition and allow us to offer our customers a better deal so they no longer have to worry about running up a massive bill when using the internet”.
