How do data roaming text alerts work?
To help you manage your data costs when accessing the internet on your mobile or using Broadband To Go while roaming in the EU, we have data roaming notifications and a spending cap in line with EU data roaming regulation.
Our spend cap is automatically applied to your account and has a limit of €60.00 (Inc. Vat). So when you first connect to the internet when roaming in the EU, a notification will appear on your screen letting you know of data roaming costs.
Once you click ‘Yes' on this notification you can then access the internet. You’ll then receive a free text message when you have reached €48 of data (80% of the €60 limit).
When the €60 data roaming spend limit is reached another notification will appear on your screen asking you to confirm whether you want to continue to data roam.
You can manage your text alerts by logging in to MyMeteor.
