If you’ve used roaming data (watch those charges) then you’ll probably be aware that you can get 100MB of data for £3 per day on EE when abroad. Other options include 200MB to use over 30 days, which is £35. Now however, in France and Spain, EE customers will be able to pick up 4G too.
Don’t panic if you’re not going to Spain or France, because EE are to roll out their 4G roaming coverage to Italy, Germany, Switzerland, USA and the Netherlands by the summer too.
This move comes after UK network Three launched their “Feel At Home” roaming service, which lets you carry your UK mobile package abroad without any difference in data, call or text costs. That also covers places like the USA, but it’s 3G only.
A range of roaming options, bundles and plans are available from the EE roaming page, which is definitely worth checking before you jet off.
