    Vodafone has changed their pricing on data traveller.
    no longer can you pay £10 a month and get 25mb of data per day, well you can if you pay £40 a month or have 900 minutes on a contract.
    I have 300 minutes and pay £15 a month so now have to pay £2 a day to get 25mb of data within the euro zone, that's a whopping £60 a month now if you access the internet on your phone.
    Anyone know of a different network that can give me some internet while abroad in the euro zone?

    That sounds pretty reasonable compared to some other packages .. prices seem to range form £1.25 to £3 per mb ... still a huge cost.

    If you have a smart phone make sure you switch off roaming as the apps can run up huge bills without you even making a call.

    a price comparison site .. http://www.broadbandchoices.co.uk/mobile-broadband-abroad.html

    I only use free wifi .. and keep the phone for emergencies.

    Is the device you are using a Dongle type (USB Plug in) or a Mifi which allows you to share the connection with others?
