The cost of using a mobile phone abroad is set to fall in July.
Holidaymakers will pay no more than 70 cents (57p) per megabyte to download data or browse the internet while travelling in another European country, thanks to a price cap set by the EU.
It is the first time a limit has been set on the cost of roaming internet usage in Europe and will be a relief to many travellers. The current average cost across the four big networks is £1.80 per megabyte, according to uSwitch.com – more than twice the new limit. The EU Commission expects the cap to save families more than €200 (£160) a year. Business travellers could save over €1000 (£800).
