T-Mobile UK announce internet travel boosters from a quid
Over here in the United Kingdom, operators have been getting some pressure from watchdogs and consumers to cut roaming rates for calls and internet usage when abroad. Both Vodafone and Three UK recently announced the EuroTraveller for Vodafone, and Euro Internet Pass for Three, and now T-Mobile has announced their Internet travel boosters.
According to the guys over at Pocket-lint, customers of T-Mobile UK can now stay online whilst abroad anywhere in the world, as the operator has now introduced their Internet and Broadband Travel Boosters that start of for as little as a quid.
T-Mobile UK’s Internet and Broadband Travel Boosters start at Â£1 for 3MB in Europe, however the rate can go as high as Â£280 for 50MB in such countries as Brazil, Cuba, and Qatar.
When a T-Mobile customer logs onto the internet via their smartphone or broadband device whilst overseas, they get redirected to a web page where they will be able to purchase a booster so they wont rack up a heavy bill.
Apparently the Internet and Broadband Travel Boosters will become available as of tomorrow the 19th of June, and the cost of the Internet and Broadband Travel Booster will be added to your monthly bill or in the case of Pay As You Go customers the cost will be deducted from your credit.
Does seem too bad to me if you are heading for Europe on your holidays, however perhaps if you are heading to one of those other countries such as Brazil, Cuba and Qatar then perhaps it’s not such a good deal and it maybe prudent to leave your smartphone at home.
