You have to have roaming activated if you want to use data on Simpel calling card abroad. Activating roaming service is free, and there is no monthly fee. In Estonia, roaming service can be activated by dialing service code *148#. To activate roaming abroad, go to the Simpel self-service. Mobile internet can be used while traveling abroad as well. You do not have to change any configuration parameters - EMT Internet works the same way everywhere in the world. Data transmission speed and pricing of using internet connection abroad depends on the roaming operator.
The price of mobile internet in all European Union countries is € 0.0054/MB. This is a very good price, since 1 GB only costs € 5.40 and in the case of regular use will last you a whole week. When using mobile internet, you will pay exactly for those MBs you have used.
If your trip takes longer than a week or you are a very active internet user, we will also ensure that your expenses will be under control – while travelling, your internet use will be subject to both the monthly limit of internet in the European Union and the monthly limit of using the Internet abroad plan (the limit will be € 60 by default, but you can also change it if you wish).
How does the monthly limit work?
For the purpose of controlling your costs, we will limit your Internet use once 1 GB is up, or when you have used the mobile internet of the European Union for € 5.40. This means that we will block the internet use and ask you whether you want to continue using internet at the price of € 0.0052/MB. If you want to continue using internet, please send a text message saying JATKA EU to 9559 and we will open the option to use mobile internet again at the price of € 0.0052 /MB.
Next, we will limit the use of mobile internet in the European Union if the monthly limit that you have set is up. To ensure that you know the volumes of your Internet use, we will also let you know once you have used the next 1 GB.
