Three touts 'unlimited' Euro data roaming for a fiver a day

Browse but don't stream

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Three has promised its contract-bound punters unlimited internet access in the rest of Europe for just a fiver a day.

The packaged is called the Euro Internet Pass. The catch is, it needs to be bought on a daily basis, each Pass becoming invalid at midnight on the day of purchase.

Three also warned that "Euro Internet Pass is designed for browsing so streaming may not be as good as it is on our UK network". You're not supposed to use your phone as modem-cum-hotspot for your other devices, either.

Three's scheme pre-empts the 1 July 2012 deadline imposed on mobile networks by the European Commission. After that date, carriers can charge no more than €0.70 (£0.56) a megabyte for data roaming in Europe.

Even at that rate, downloading a 750MB video file will cost you €525 (£422) at that rate, so you can see why Three is throttling video.

Three previously priced European data roaming at £1.28 a megabyte. Many of its rivals charge a lot more. ®
