How to use our Roaming Tool
The Mobile Broadband Roaming Costs Tool has been designed to simplify the process of selecting a mobile network for internet access abroad by providing a quick reference to international data costs and availability across all networks.
To use the tool, select a country from the drop-down menu to compare international data pricing for the four major networks and, when applicable, other providers which offer specialised roaming services.
This tool is meant as a guide only; please keep the following in mind when using it...
The tool only shows the lowest contract prices
Every network has a variety of price points for international data roaming, including discounted data bundles. This tool is only intended to be a quick reference, so we display the lowest price for using a standard pay monthly contract service in each country.
But that may not mean it is the best value; in many cases, you will be better off purchasing a bundle to get the most for your money, though if you only need to check email or browse a website, this may not be desirable.
In instances where a network offers both a flat per-MB charge or a data bundle, we will show the per-MB charge. If there is no per-MB charge you'll see the lowest bundle price.
Pay-as-you-go prices are not displayed. These may be the same as the contract packages, but you should confirm with the network. Note that some networks do not allow data roaming on PAYG.
"FREE" does not mean there's no cost
Some providers offer free roaming in other countries.
But this does not necessarily mean it is free of all costs — what it means is that there are no additional charges for roaming.
If you have free data included on your plan, then that will be valid in countries where the network supports free roaming. But you will still be subject to the regular network tariff for calls, texts, and data outside any free allowances included with your mobile plan.
Fair usage may apply
There may be a fair usage limit for internet access, even when there are no roaming charges. Read your network's terms carefully to avoid service limitations or extra costs.
Coverage is not guaranteed
Just because a price is displayed, it is not any guarantee of connectivity. If internet access is vital you should confirm coverage with the network, and have a backup plan in case there's no signal.
Check prices before travelling
While we will do our best to ensure this information is current, we cannot promise to catch every price change the moment it happens. Broadband Genie cannot accept any liability for unexpected costs incurred, so if you are planning on making extensive use of mobile internet when travelling, we highly recommend you double-check the prices to avoid any surprises in the next bill.
