T-Mobile has announced its new mobile roaming service, Internet and Broadband Travel Boosters.
Following EU regulations seeking the prevention of UK mobile networks, T-Mobile has joined Vodafone and Three in lowering the cost of such tariffs for their customers.
EU rules on preventing British mobile networks from establishing excessive charges for their customers, means tourists throughout Europe will see the cost of using ones mobile to surf the internet abroad fall dramatically.
T-Mobile have thus followed the current strategic trend and to the wishes of the EU introduced will implement a more consumer friendly tariff.
T-Mobile’s boosters are priced at 33p per MB, with 3MB worth of data acquirable for £1. For £5 20MB can be purchased, while £10 supplies customers with 50MB worth of data. This isn’t as cost effective as Vodafone’s tariff which allows users to enjoy their existing British plans while on holiday for an extra £3 a day.
All in all however, regardless of the minimal differences between different network’s tariffs, the cost of using mobile phone and broadband abroad will lower considerably, finally making it affordable.
The only question that remains however is whether or not using ones internet abroad is a positive thing in the first place.
Holidays are supposed to be an escape from everyday life and the very idea of needing to check ones social media accounts while sat on the beach is preposterous and a sign of how far humans have gone concerning their attachment to technology.
