T-Mobile outs low-cost mobile data roaming bundles

Gets in before new EU price limits bite

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

T-Mobile is the latest UK cellco to announce a revamp of imobile data roaming charges ahead of the introduction of Europe-wide billing rules on 1 July.

The Everything Everywhere brand will offer customers the opportunity to buy "Travel Boosters" when they use their smartphones or 3G modems overseas.

Smartphone owners can pick 3, 10 or 50MB bundle for £1, £2.50 and £10, respectively - or 33p, 25p or 20p a megabyte. Each bundle lasts for 30 days or until the data has been used, whichever comes first.

For modem owners, the price bands are 3, 20, 50 and 200MB, priced at £1, £5, £10 and £35, respectively. Again, that's 33p, 25p, 20p and 17.5p a megabyte.

T-Mobile punters will be offered the bundles as soon as they attempt to access the internet when overseas. The price of the bundle will be added to pay-monthly customers' next bill, or knocked off PAYG folks' credit, if they have enough to cover it.

From 1 July, European carriers can charge no more than €0.70 (£0.56) a megabyte for data roaming in Europe.

Three announced its own pre-regulation pricing last week.

T-Mobile will use the Travel Boosters mechanism for roaming more widely than European countries. It has full details of the various country groups and their pricing plans on its website. ®
