Just returned after a couple of months + roaming around Europe and following an horrendous experience with RWG mobile last year , I gave IQ mobile a go this time after seeing some good reports posted on this group. Pleased to say it worked flawlessly in all countries visited, including some remote locations . Having purchased their basic data sim, you simply load data on it, as and when required (no rolling contract) the chosen package expires after 1 month, no data rollover sadly, but no "fair usage" cap trap either. The data package I went for is designed specifically for "EU " roaming .

Ours also performed flawlessly in EU and have now topped it up a few times, and used for UK use as well. So pleased, am porting one of our mobile phones over to them with good expectations - not the cheapest but networks where we live is mostly poor.

Ditto for us for the past 6 weeks in France. Prior to leaving we were using it in the moho router for our house WiFi pending fibre supplier getting their finger out - still using it at home as no progress!

In a phone or a mifi/dongle?

Same with us, just used it in Germany and Switzerland, with no problems.

I found it worked OK in France & Spain. Only trouble was I had to have OH's iPad plugged into the MacBook USB port. It wouldn't find it as a hotspot. Probably me not being techie enough. Funnily enough, when I tested it before departure it was OK.

We are down in beziers since the 27th of June and all I can say is like a lot of people I was very sceptical about this chip, but all I can say is I have been smashing the 100g data on the football and it hasn’t missed a beat, and my WiFi is a AVTEX 985, been in contact with Frazier just to make sure all ok. customer support excellent 👍

Concur with everything said. And I think a nice little extra is the fact that it's extremely simple to keep an eye on your usage to make sure you don't run out of data mid-way through a match or whilst working on something important. And Frazer offers brilliant support if your router (like ours) needs tweaking to ensure an initial connection.

As MichaelT says, it's a tab on their website. Hit the button, they email you with a code and that shows your usage. Found myself becoming addicted to seeing how much data a game used and working out which games to miss to ensure I didn't run out before leaving France.
Care to divulge how much data a match uses? Never really cared about such things in UK, but could prove important when we cross the pond.

Around 5-6gb. My firestick has options for SD and HD, even FHD, but I didn't notice a significant difference in usage from one to another. I think there's an option to adjust the firestick to reduce picture quality but as I knew I wasn't going to miss any England games it wasn't really too important, as long as I was careful in which other games I watched. And you can always buy another 100gb from IQ if you do run out.

Been using IQ Go for a while now, adding bolt-on data packages regularly to the annual sim.

Never had a problem. Worked brilliantly in Italy, Switzerland and France on last tour, and now in Norway it has been flawless - and in all the countries we had to pass through to get here.

Very reasonable prices; cannot recommend them strongly enough.
