3G roaming vs WiFi roaming – there is a clear winner – published 2008
Posted from Barcelona Airport – on the way back from Mobile World Congress.
Logged onto the Kubi WiFi access point in the airport. Before connecing via my BT OpenZone roaming account, I thought I’d check the roaming charges – on Kubi access is 12.7p per minute! That’s £7.62 per hour!
In contrast, my Vodafone data card is just £8.50 for 50MB in a 24 hour period. As I have 2+ hours to wait at the airport – out came the data card – a no brainer!
It was however interesting to read Arun Sarin’s comments from Mobile World congress on data roaming charges Vodafone rejects EU call for caps on data roaming charges
