Back in February Orange launched a roaming data plan to try and reduce the “post holiday phone bill shock” that many of us have experienced. New rules have now kicked in to add a €50 (£41 excluding VAT) cut-off when using your phone for data abroad. A warning text will also pop up when you reach 80% of the limit and all providers will have to observe it.
The new rules also add the ability to set your own limits and there’s a mandatory text detailing how much you’re being charged when you arrive in a country.
