Cheaper roaming on the way

USE of mobile internet to access maps, videos, photos, social networks and email will be cheaper while travelling in other EU countries from this weekend.

A maximum charge for 'data roaming' comes into place from July 1. The new price cap means that, instead of paying upwards of €4 per megabyte to go online or review maps, the price per megabyte is capped at 70 cents.
