In the past it happened sometimes that users after a fine vacation home an expensive account of their mobile carrier in the bus were. Painful, but most users were not warned by their provider.
While calling or texting abroad a lot more expensive, there is still the possibility of creating your consumption monitor. With mobile internet is difficult, because most providers work with fixed prices per megabyte or per minute that you’re online.
Subscription in advance
Want to vacation carefree surfing, you hear from your ISP what the possibilities are.Almost all have special offers for cheaper online go abroad. Depending on your usage per day, there are several possibilities. Instead of two to three per megabyte you will pay ‘only’ five euros per 30 megabytes per day.
That’s a lot cheaper, but the activation would at most providers easier allowed. Very rarely, as in Proximus Generation Connect, there are a number of megabytes for internationally mobile internet with your subscription. Something we can only applaud.
A local SIM
Yet such a special option to activate it by no means the only possibility. There are some foreign prepaid SIM cards with mobile internet. Now of course, not every foreign provider offers mobile internet in that way, but if it does so often with interesting formulas.

With this service you can buy a router that plugs into your existing Internet installation. When that is installed, you can enjoy worldwide free of all Fon Spots, and that there are now about four million.
