It's not clear. As far as I know, nothing has been ruled out or abolished, it's just that announced dates for vote/approval for new measures slip and nothing has happened yet. There were no further mandatory price cuts planned in the current regulation after the ones that took place last year and therefore no strict timeline. But the idea is still in the ...

Now that I'm back from my trip I thought I'd add my own answer with details of the experience. All of the following is using an iPhone 4S, unlocked and using T-Mobile's Simple Choice plan (originally an AT&T locked phone). On landing at Heathrow I turned off airplane mode and my phone immediately connected to EE. I've seen reports that this could take ...

According to the Verizon Trip Planer they don't offer LTE roaming to Germany for all devices I checked. You can use that tool to look up coverage and plans based on your devices. Even if this were working, the plans seem more expensive than what you can get in Germany. All networks now provide LTE coverage but you need an unlocked device which works with ...

Forfaits Bloqués Sans Engagement I am afraid France is a country where mobile internet is still very expensive. You could buy a standard prepaid SIM card and top it up with credit. You could then burn through this credit using internet data. Beware that rates are often somewhat expensive. SFR for example will charge you 0,50€/internet session, limited to ...

The BlackBerry Q10 was actually sold in five different models, with their radio bands customized by which carriers sold them. While all of them will give you basic voice coverage in New Zealand, not all of them will give you 3G or 4G coverage. Look up your specific model number on the box that the phone came in, on the label behind the battery, or in the ...

You might want to check opensignal.com, they have a map showing coverage - from that it would seem coverage on Sicily is below average for Italy; and I can tell you Italy in general is below average compared to other european countries. That said, it seem I TIM (Telecom Italia) is the only provider actually covering the whole of Sicily, with Vodafone and 3 ...

I live in Uruguay (and use ANCEL), but I'm in no other way affiliated with them. I just use them and recommend them when have friends visiting because they're, in my opinion, the best choice available here. With their Kit Prepago, you get: 500 SMS to other ANCEL mobiles 512 MBs to use the LTE network (or 384 MBs if you use the 3G infrastructure) 1000 mins ...

I'm not local from uruguay, but I spent a few summer vacations there. It semes that ANTEL has around 50% of the mobile market and, as far as I remember, ANTEL was the only company providing POTS telephony in Uruguay. It used to be a nation-wide monopoly and it seems to remain this way as this link (in spanish) says. That's why they can provide a much cheaper ...

Since the current answers are rather outdated, here's a web site with recent-enough information. Generally, the no-contract plans are affordable. For example, Golan Telecom doesn't require Israeli identification and you can even pay by PayPal. Their activation fee is 49 ILS, and for unlimited calls and 1GB data you'd pay 37 ILS monthly (59 ILS monthly for ...

Just got back from a month in England, France, Belgium, Netherlands. Texting worked perfectly; phone was fine at 20 cents/minute (though when wifi is available, Google voice is 1 cent per minute); the data at "2G" made me long for the old days with my dial-up modem (56k): typical speeds I got on the free international data roaming plan were 10 to 15k (not ...

Looks like it'll be option 1 unless you can get a good roaming deal at home before leaving. I travel a lot between the two countries and also only really care about data, as far as I know there's no prepaid-SIM that even allows roaming between the two. For a long time I was using dual SIMs RedPocket / Koodo, it seem though the best option is getting a US ...

Not a complete answer, but I used Similicious during a month long trip to Canada from the UK last year. Can't fault them. I took data only (used skype for calls, but they have voice/data plans), they asked about where I'd be to ensure best provider (was primarily in Alberta so got Rogers and 4G for most of the trip) and device to ensure correct sim type was ...

There are only three operators in Australia that actually own and operate their own networks, and they are: Telstra, the former state monopoly. My usual recommendation if you're planning to travel even slightly off the beaten track, since they have the widest network by a long shot, but a bit more expensive than the competition. Optus, an arm of ...
