Data Fair Use Policy
A fair use policy applies to the volume of data that can be consumed at local national rates while roaming in the EU*. The volume of data that can be consumed at local national rates while roaming in the EU* is calculated as follows: The roaming data volume must be at most twice the volume obtained by dividing the price of your mobile plan or additional data bundles (add-ons) excluding VAT, by €4.5 (the regulated maximum wholesale roaming cap in the EU during 2019). When exceeding the roaming data volume at local national rates while roaming in EU*, the following additional charges start to apply on the usage of the remaining MBs of the mobile plan or additional data bundles (add-ons). Mobile Internet: €0.00512 per MB (Inc. VAT 19%). Examples below:
Example 1: 3 GB Data bundle (add-on) for 3 Euro (Inc. VAT) or 2.5210 Euro (Excl. VAT)
Roaming data volume = (2*(2.5210/4.5)) = 1.12 GB ↦ Additional charges (€0.00512/ΜΒ) start to apply for data usage while roaming in EU* above 1.12GB and for the remaining MBs of the Data bundle (add-on). Once the 3GB of the add-on data bundle are consumed, the access to mobile internet continues at local national rates (€ 0.095/MB).
Example 2: Mobile plan with unlimited calls, SMS and 8GB data for 34.90 Euro (Inc. VAT) or 29.3277 Euro (Excl. VAT)
Roaming data volume = (2*(29.3277/4.5)) = 13GB ↦ All 8GB can be used while roaming in EU* without any surcharges. Once the 8GB of the mobile plan are consumed, the access to mobile internet continues at local national rates (€ 0.095/MB).
Example 3: Mobile plan with unlimited calls, SMS and mobile internet for 49.90 Euro (Inc. VAT) or 41.9327 (Excl. VAT)
Roaming data volume = (2*(41.9327/4.5)) = 18.64GB ↦ Additional charges (€0.00512/ΜΒ) start to apply for data usage while roaming in EU* above 18.64GB
