    I have friends travelling from Australia to Italy for a holiday this summer, and wondered if anyone could recommend a payg data sim they could buy to get connected & online whilst there?

    Probably a Togglemobile SIM, see this link - http://www.togglemobile.co.uk/home/en

    or

    http://www.motorhomewifi.com/product/toggle-sim-card-free-incoming-calls-abroad/

    or contact Addie (a member here) - whose site, www.motorhomewifi.com is listed above.

    I've been using one for just on a year and they operate the way the site claims - brilliant.

    Not sure if Toggle is supported in Italy looking at their website,

    but at 15p/mb for data it is very very expensive, even if it is supported in Italy...

    1Gb = £150

    Europasim will give you 500mb per day for €2


    Internet in Italy

    2 € per connection day with 500 MB included
    After 500 MB per day: 50 MB cost 2 € (in 100 KB units)
    Important: This tariff is only valid if you use the APN web.omnitel.it
    Tethering and VOIP are supported

    A local sim will probably be the best bet.

    eg, Vodafone Italy for €9.99 per month gives (within Italy);


    "Smart 200"
    200 minutes to all
    200 SMS to all
    1 GB high-speed Internet
    service Smart
    € 9.90 per month

    I'm sure there are better local sim deals to be had though
