Don’t know about 3 but vodaphone do exactly the same deal. You can use all your data abroad but only for 2 months in 4. Most others have that limitation I think. You can also use the sim in a mifi box and just ignore the phone text element.

Hi John..Dont know if this helps or hinders you but..my son made enquiries regarding the 100 gb Three package deal and after discussing it with them for a while , decided that he would call back at a later date if he was interested. His Home line has been bombarded with Three mobile accounts saying he has a problem with his account and that he should contact them ASAP . He has not got an account with them??
Be wary of where you sign up!!

I was in touch with Three earlier this morning about the same subject. They told me that the data is restricted to 19GB per month when roaming, however there is no restriction on the "Endless Bingeing" which includes Netflix, TV player, apple music etc and is not taken from your 100GB data allowance.

Hello Pete what was your thoughts on the subject and did you go for it

Hi John, they also told me that it can be used in a MiFi, down side is that you have to sign up for a 12 month contract, but I reckon i'll go for it.

IMO it all depends on how much data you use. I use the 24gb/24 month 3 PAYG cards but only need them when I'm away. Just coming to the end of a 3 month trip in Europe and have never had a problem, except when the old card expired (to the minute, I kept a note!). These are more than enough as I don't stream TV or films, maybe a few hours of Radio 2 if we're feeling a bit homesick!

To me a monthly contract is a waste of money because I'd never use that much data - cheaper for me to use the PAYG cards.

Another vote for Vodafone. We've not had an problems or experienced data restrictions anywhere in Europe. The only issue was coverage was poor along the Mosel but fine everywhere else from Portugal to the toe of Italy and Sicily.

It is also worth noting that hidden away in Vodafone T& C's for contracts is a clause stating that the price goes up by the rate of inflation every April.

It is not a lot of money but I was displeased,to say the least, when I discovered this today and made my displeasure known to them.
