Vodafone looks to cut costs for Euro roamers

2 July 2009 — 10:29 AM

Vodafone announced this week that 2.5 million of its existing UK customers could soon be benefiting from better value calls, texts and picture messaged while travelling in Europe.

The group will now provide handset users roaming internet access for £4.99 per day that allows them up to 25 MB of data. However, for lighter users looking to utilise less than 1 MB the amount is charged on a per kb rate.

According to the network this means receiving or replying to an email could cost around 50p and mobile broadband users have also been given the opportunity to save.

"This greater clarity and value has also been introduced for laptop users who want to use the internet when they are abroad. Customers with their laptops in Europe will receive 50MB for £9.99," Vodafone confirmed.

Shoppers looking to recycle mobile phones in favour of one of Vodafone's latest devices could opt for the HTC Magic - which is exclusive to the network in the UK.
