Europe roaming ? Get Best Sim Card for EU Countries

Europe roaming charges ended on 15 June 2017. Europeans travelling within the EU countries can Roam Like at Home and pay domestic prices for roaming calls, SMS and data.

“Roam Like At Home” & Europe roaming applies in all 28 EU and EEA countries:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Denmark, Greece, Estonia, United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Croatia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.


Roam Like at Home in EU countries

Phone calls, SMS and going online with your mobile device from another EU country are covered in the national bundle. The minutes of calls, SMS and megabytes of data that a person consumes abroad (within the EU) are charged the same as at home. People will no longer return home to extortionate phone bills while travelling within the EU.

If a person has unlimited calls and SMS, they will get unlimited calls and SMS when roaming in the EU. However if a person has unlimited mobile data or very cheap mobile data at home, his operator may apply a safeguard (fair use) limit on data use while roaming. If so, the operator will have to inform the customer in advance about such a limit and alert them when they reach this limit.

The EU rules ensure that such a roaming data limit should cover the normal usage patterns of most travelers. If a person reaches the limit, they can continue to use data roaming for a very small fee: up to 6€/GB + VAT, which is 8 times less than before 15 June 2017 and 33 times less than early 2016.

As long as a person travels periodically and spends more time in his home country than abroad over any 4-month period, they can fully benefit from Roam Like at Home. If a person gets charged extra, they should first contest those charges with their operator, who should have a complaints procedure in place. If the operator persists, the person should refer to the national telecoms regulator, who will settle the case.


Two of the three Baltic nations sit comfortably inside the less expensive half of the list, although for countries that enjoy some of the most advanced broadband networks in the world they aren’t represented in the top 40 when it comes to the cost of mobile data.

Lithuania is the cheapest of the three with 1GB costing an average of $2.06 and sits in 41st place in the world, while in Estonia 1GB costs $3.67 on average. Latvia sits in the most expensive half of the list with an average of $7.12 although it’s still below the global average of $8.53.

Eastern Europe

The presence of good network infrastructure throughout Eastern Europe helps the majority of countries to appear in the less expensive half of the table although none make it into the top 20 cheapest countries. The cheapest in the region is Poland with an average price per 1GB of $1.32, followed by Romania ($1.89) and Slovenia ($2.21).

Greece’s well-documented economic problems are evident here, with mobile data prices in the country much more expensive than in any of its neighbours. Greece’s average price per 1GB of $32.71 puts it in the top 10 most expensive places in the world to buy mobile data and makes it easily the most expensive in Europe.

CIS (Former USSR)

A number of CIS countries are among the very cheapest in the world for mobile data and all but one sits inside the less expensive half of the table. Kyrgyzstan is a very close second to India in the world table with an average of $0.27, just ahead of third-placed Kazakhstan ($0.49) and fourth-placed Ukraine ($0.51). The Russian Federation itself is just outside the world top 10 with the average price of 1GB $0.91.

Turkmenistan is the only CIS nation to appear among the most expensive in the world where 1GB of data costs $19.81 on average – that’s more than four times what it costs in the second most expensive CIS country, Tajikistan ($4.84).

Western Europe

Western Europe consists primarily of wealthy nations with highly developed mobile infrastructures. Finland leads the way with the cheapest mobile data in Western Europe, thanks to the ubiquity of unlimited data packages. Western Europe has only one country in the top ten, and is spread quite evenly throughout the table, with countries such as Switzerland, Malta and Portugal falling outside the top 200.

The most expensive country in Western Europe is Switzerland, whose main provider Swisscom is one of the leading lights of Europe in trialling 5G technology.
