How the hell can EE justify.

Get 2GB of data for just £75 abroad!?

I thought the rules and law changed to stop this? even a business wouldn't pay £37.50 a GB!

I haven't seen that on the website, but I assume its non EU countries only.

Roaming outside the EU is expensive, on all networks. I believe a lot of the money goes to the overseas network.

Various packages can opt you out of the EU caps. So if £75 for 2GB is a package sold as such then its possible.

Look at cost of some payg per MB rates and 2000MB can be that expensive at home.

They offer the option to use unlimited minutes and texts for £1.66 a day but it's on the bottom of the business page

The 2GB package IS for Europe - but it lasts for 12 months (other boosters last 24hrs or 7 days). I guess the idea is you can continually dip in and out of it on regular trips to EU. Anyone know what the EU commissions' cap on roaming data is?

Look at Three. They offer data roaming for free as part of your existing plan for Australia, USA, etc.

If a smaller company can do this, I'm sure others can do the same too...

Three is great (I have a three MiFi) but signal is so variable, I can't afford to use them as a mobile provider.

Does anyone know please of a Mobile company that does a USB dongle that can also have a micro sim in it that I can take out?

I'm trying to find a solution where I can use my tablet/keyboard with has USB when away but also just use the nano sim in my ipad when I am home.

would it be a case of buying one and getting a sim like a giffgaff one? I mention them as they are the only provider I know of that does a sim which has a micro and nano adapter all in one.

You can buy sim adapters for very little money. I used to use one to convert between full size and micro for just this purpose. I also prefer MiFi devices to USB sticks as they work with anything that has WiFi (including iPads, phones, etc) and you don't need to install drivers.
