Data Roaming allowed in certain countries


#1

Good Morning
We have a data contract which is unlimited data in the following countries; France, Monaco, Germany, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, Estonia, Finland, Gibraltar, Greece, Guernsey, Hungary, Isle of Man, Åland Islands, Canary Islands, Faeroe Islands, Ireland, Italy, Jersey, the Azores, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malta, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, United Kingdom, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Vatican City, La Désirade, Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Marie-Galante, Martinique, Mayotte, Réunion, St. Barts, Les Saintes, Saint Martin, Saint Pierre and Miquelon

The problem is that we get charged about €1000 per GB if we roam outside of these countries but to use the plan in these any of these countries, we must select “Enable Data Roaming”

Would it be possible to enable data roaming for certain countries?

Thank You

Hi,

This was brought up in our internal meeting. The feature is in our roadmap but no ETA at the moment. Stay tuned.

Great news! If you need tester for it, we have many devices that need this feature!

Our requirement is quite simple - allow or block/don’t connect depending on country.
Some other users might like a set up like this - allow 12 GB per month in home country e.g. France and allow 1 GB per month in the following manually selected countries; Italy, Spain etc.

Thank You

and, if I may add, a list of accepted carrier is even more effective! It is longer to configure certainly, but much more flexible.

Hi Paille
I agree with you. Would be great as an advanced feature especially when your carrier has roaming agreements with only certain carriers in countries.
Thanks

One note to add, we have a few deployments using SIM cards that have a roaming data cap for within Europe say 5GB domestic data plus 1GB roaming data within Europe.

Adding a roaming data usage allowance on top of the list of accepted roaming countries would be ideal.
