I'm not sure if what I'm about to ask for even exists, but is there a SIM card that I could get, that allows me to use 3G/4G data anywhere within the EU for a decent price?

I live in Australia and the SIM cards here are $100 for 5GB of data!

  • I'm assuming you want prepaid?

  • Yes @William, unless I can get a 1-month valid plan xD

  • I ended up purchasing a Lycamobile prepaid sim card at Heathrow airport from a vending machine, it had data roaming in Europe with good speeds (usually at least 9 megaBIT up/down)

Most providers in Europe include same-price data in all of EU. So you can buy a SIM in Germany and travel to France and use the same data quote. This was set as an EU law (I believe) a couple of years ago. An price example is 12GB data for €20 or so in Germany.

    Can you give an example for a regular (of course prepaid) SIM card from a german provider which gives you 12GB for only 20€? Because from my personal experience it is more like 5GB for 20€. Jul 15 '18 at 12:06
  • It's not so easy to buy a sim-card in Germany as a tourist. Even a pre-paid.

Since 15th June 2017 you can use any SIM bought in a EU country without any additional roaming charges in other EU countries (with some limitations, which however are only noteworthy if you travel for a couple of months through the EU without going back to the country where you bought the SIM card).

This means it depends mainly on the first EU country you enter and a good overview of the available prepaid SIM card can be found at the Prepaid Data SIM Wiki.
