International data usage

  • Data usage is not unreasonably expensive in the EU region anymore. A hundred megabytes of data will, however, show up in the invoice but do not cause unbearable costs. Because of this, the data should still only be used in EU when really needed, so please use your head.
  • In the rest of the world data usage is still extremely expensive in many places. Even small amounts of data may cause huge expenses.
  • Mobile data usage is allowed for absolutely necessary work related stuff in small amounts when there are no other ways for connection.
  • Personal usage of data abroad is strictly prohibited
  • It is recommended to use local prepaid subscription for data usage on longer work trips or if data is known to be needed
    • These are sold in airports
    • Invoicing with travel expenses
