    Question Best europe roaming SIM data deal?

    Hi

    I'll be roaming in Sweden, France, Brussels, Greece for a period of 3 weeks and I wanted to ask some recommendations on which data SIM I should get?

    I see a few Amazon SIM cards with 40GB of data from o2 UK but I am reading on this forum that data when roaming outside the UK is limited to 3G and that on o2 UK there is a 12gb roaming cap?

    What's most important to me:
    - 4G / LTE speeds
    - a lot of data
    - affordable
    - ability to roam in France, Sweden, Brussels, Greece

    Thanks!

    Any European sim will roam in any other European country. I think Three or Vodafone have the best deals for short term. And the Three sim can be ordered from Amazon in the U.S.

    Based on posts on TripAdvisor and reviews on Amazon:

    1. 3 is limited to 3G when outside the UK

    2. Vodafone and EE have 4G/LTE data in Europe outside the UK. Both of these have SIM cards that can be purchased on Amazon.

    3. TIM has good reviews on TripAdvisor but I haven’t seen (or maybe I just haven’t looked) it on Amazon.

    Check the support pages for international roaming on the Three website. I think you'll find they show extensive 4G coverage while roaming in Europe. I'm getting 4G here in the U.S. using Three.

    The nice thing about using a UK sim is that customer support is in English, if that's your language. And I've found that the price of data on UK plans can't be beat.
