    The Frightening bit......

    Most countries offer up to 7.2Mb/s. That's about 0.72MB/s and so you could be running up a bill of around €0.5 per second if anyone was daft enough to watch high quality video or download movies.

    FUN users looking at snaps, 5 to 10 snaps could be 1MB, €0.59, unless some inconsiderate FUNster has uploaded full sized files in which case one snap could cost €3.6 EACH snap.

    The idea of being able to actually log on in all countries is good.

    That's all I need if there's no WiFi available.
    I just seemed to me a better bet than some others I've heard of.
    I wouldn't use for long term use, & it may be the first step in the right direction.

    No matter which mobile device you use when in europe one thing to remember to do is to make sure that automatic update downloads are disabled from microsoft etc, as they really do eat into the data allowance, i use on average 11mb per day in my normal use abroad that includes checking forums out and emails and usually ending up in chat on here at some stage of the evening.One evening my usage was 63mb - it was microsoft sending updates - I had forgotten to turn off autoupdate soon remembered though seeing that.
