Europe Data Coverage with the UK Data Sim

It means you can use your tablet to book your flight from the deserts of Israel to the glaciers of Iceland and know that you’ll automatically have data at both ends.

Maximise Your Data Usage When in Europe

Your UK Data Sim Card comes with a lot of data – a full 3GB. That’s easily enough to see you through the 90 days your sim card is valid for. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention to how much data you are using. There are certain settings your phone may have, some apps you use and some websites you visit that can quickly drain a lot of your data.

While the amount of data certain operations use depends on many factors, here’s a rough guide to what 3GB of data means. You could

  • Send and receive 60,000 emails, or
  • Instant message chat with your friends for 2 full days, or
  • Spend 24 hours on Facebook or web surfing, or
  • Upload 1000 photos, or
  • Watch YouTube on standard-quality for 9 hours, or
  • Call home with 8 hours of video chat, or
  • Play online games for anything between 8 and 80 hours (it varies wildly), or • Watch just half of a movie streaming in HD.

There are other factors to consider rather than overall time. One of the most unexpected ways your mobile device can use up a lot of data without you knowing is automatic app updates. On some devices, apps are set to automatically download large updates regardless of what sort of connection you have. You might not even get a notification that an app you’ve never even used is silently getting a 200MB update. So, go into your mobile device settings and change them so apps can only update if you give permission. There are different ways to do it for iOS and Android. Once you’ve done that hold off on updating until you have a good signal on an unlimited connection.

Keep an eye on your data sim balance:

  • Switch on the device that has your data sim installed
  • TurnOFFWi-Fi
  • Goto https://www.three.co.uk
  • Click "Check your data allowance"
  • Your remaining data will be shown in MB – an unused data sim will have just over 3000MB.
