I was wondering how my costs here in the Netherlands compare to elsewhere.

My wife and I share a Vodafone account and pay a total of €40 / £ 34.50 for a SIM only subscription (for two phones).  We have a total of 200GB data and use less than 10GB per month between us. 

We have unlimited calling and SMS here in the Netherlands.  I'm sure we have usage within the EU but I couldn't quickly find the information.  I did see we have a 40GB limitation in the EU (outside of the Netherlands).

So, are we paying roughly the same as everyone else?

Best not get into subscription services, like streaming, movie, etc... the UK is the biggest rip off when you compare to other countries

Hello @davehorne 

I'm based in the UK. 

I prefer not to be locked in a contract with a network so I choose to go for Pay As You Go  { PAYG }

I'm with a network called o2. 

I pay £30 a month by topping up and being in a bundle. 

For this I receive >

Unlimited UK Calls.

Unlimited UK Texts. 

125Gb of Data that rolls over into the next month if I do not use it all. 

250 international minutes to 42 countries.

Includes discounted international calls from the UK starting at 1p/min.

As I'm not locked into paying each month I can choose not to top up of I wish. 

I cam also change my tariff once a month.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "
