Telia increases mobile data volume of roaming packages outside EU

In March, telecom operator Telia launched new daily and weekly packages for its customers that allow them to use a much larger amount of mobile data when traveling outside the European Union.

While previously daily packages intended for use outside the EU generally contained 100 megabytes (MB) of mobile data, then in the updated packages this amount in the most popular travel destinations of Estonians, including Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, Egypt, Switzerland and Thailand, is 512MB, that is more than five times more than before.

The weekly packages also contain significantly more capacity — in the most popular travel destinations, customers can now use 3GB of data, which is almost six times more than before.

Evelin Neerot, head of the internet solutions and voice telephony department at Telia, said that the company decided to increase the volumes in its roaming packages due to the changing usage habits of customers.

“The previous daily and weekly packages had outlived their usefulness and no longer met the expectations of customers, which is why we decided to modernize the packages and offer customers more value. Thanks to the new packages, our customers can be more carefree in their use of mobile internet while traveling,” Neerot said.

According to her, in an increasingly digitized world, people have a clear expectation that mobile internet and various digital services can be conveniently used not only in their home country but also when traveling.

“The larger volume of daily and weekly packages than before will definitely make traveling more convenient, as people will not have such a great need to purchase local SIM cards while traveling,” Neerot added.

People who do not want to use mobile data while traveling abroad can turn off data roaming on their device.
