If you’re wondering whether your mobile broadband will work abroad, you should understand that some mobile internet tariffs have a block on them, so that you can only use them within the United Kingdom.
In particular, this is often the case with pay as you go arrangements. But if this block doesn’t apply with your deal, you can go online wherever you happen to be in the world, as long as your mobile broadband provider has an agreement with the country you are visiting. This use of going online on your laptop outside Britain is generally known as ‘roaming’.
The good news is that prices have come down in recent years, particularly in EU countries, where they are cheaper than elsewhere. There are new laws in place to cap how much your bill can be – once you’ve spent around 50 Euros you will be cut off, unless you have another arrangement in place in advance.
And you should be able to use your dongle or card abroad. But be aware of what you will be charged before you travel, as rates are not always cheap.
