Shock mobile internet bill of 31,500GBP for 1 British holidaymaker!

Posted by Trustive on April 21, 2010

31,500GBP in international mobile internet (data) roaming charges – that’s what one British holidaymaker faced paying upon his return home from his relaxing holiday in Portugal!

Mr Dobsyn had used his Vodafone data card to download one episode of Prison Break and a couple of songs and thought that the resulting bill was a joke! It seems that despite being an IT worker, Mr Dobsyn – like many 3G customers – was unaware of the excessive charges levied by mobile operators for international data roaming. This case took place in early 2009 and so thankfully the EU legislation that came into force in July last year is protecting mobile internet users by forcing mobile operators to cap data roaming usage at 50 Euros. 50 Euros is a limit that can be quickly reached, especially when you use 3G services, and so Trustive highly recommends using WiFi wherever possible.

WiFi is far cheaper, faster and easier than 3G and with Trustive’s wide range of prepaid and subscription WiFi access accounts, there are no hidden charges, and more importantly for Mr Dobsyn, no download quotas!
