"£1000+ bill from Vodafone due 5 very brief data-calls while Roaming in the Netherlands!!?!?"
Very brief but you managed to download 150mb???
If you are roaming that often then time to get on a proper tariff.
Appx £120 pm month for (normally) pretty high speed data.
Covers all my UK usage (about 2gb pm) and any calls to retrieve e-mail with a bit of web surfing. Go over its 4.99 per mb not £10+
That aside, tariffs are the biggest rip-off for the occassional traveller from the UK and anything which lowers them is OK by me.
BT may be getting the lions share of the customers but it is just a shame that they cannot sort out their domestic broadband service.
If I want to surf (or whatever) at 3 am then great I can get 8meg.
Want to do anything at 5pm through Midnight.... then I am lucky to get 0.5meg.
Of course I expect speeds to drop during peak hours but not that much.
Come on sort things out before bragging about the size.
