Orange have launched a new European mobile broadband bundle for monthly contract, dongle and small business customers which offers a reduced rate for mobile Internet use when roaming. The services cost £3 a day for 30MB of data whilst in Europe and is offered alongside existing mobile broadband roaming offers.
Pay monthly customers can now use this daily bundle in place of having to take out a 30-day option which offered £15 for 30MB, £50 for 150MB and £150 for 500MB of data.
"Travelling abroad is an exciting prospect for everyone and it is now easier than ever to stay connected to friends and family. Whether our customers want to upload their latest holiday snaps on Facebook or simply send an email sharing tales and adventures, many people consider internet access an integral part of any trip.
For this very reason we are introducing the new daily roaming bundle and have already revised existing monthly and 30-day roaming bundles for the EU to help our pay monthly customers get the most out of their mobile internet while in Europe."Liz Wynn, (Director of In Life), Orange UK
The new pricing at £3 per 30MB of data works out at 10p per megabyte, which is below the EU Commission's proposed retail price caps which would take place from July 2014.
