How much does it cost to use more than the amount of data included in my subscription in the EU and EEA countries?

What is the cost of using the internet in Sweden or Estonia?
If your subscription includes unlimited data usage in the Nordic and Baltic countries, you can use the internet in Sweden and Estonia as much as in Finland.
If you do not have unlimited data usage in the Nordic and Baltic countries, your monthly fee includes a certain amount of data usage in the EU and EEA countries. You can see the amount of data usage in your subscription for the EU and EEA countries from OmaElisa.
What is the cost of using the internet in the United Kingdom?
For the time being, pricing in EU and EEA countries also applies to the UK. We will notify you in advance of any changes via our website.
How much data is used abroad?
The amount depends on how much you use your phone to access the internet, for example, by reading email, using map apps or social media. For instance, watching videos consumes more data than listening to music.
2 Gt of data usage abroad corresponds to about
three hours of video watching on the internet,
1,000 website visits,
60,000 WhatsApp messages,
or 400 images uploaded to internet.
How do I make sure that use of the internet abroad will be possible?
In order to be able to use the data transfer capacity included in your subscription in EU and EEA countries, your subscription must not have international data transfer blocking enabled. Blocks on data transfer for your subscription can be checked through OmaElisa:
After logging in, select your subscription number from the menu on the left.
Click on the tab for blocks on usage (Usage blocks) and use the edit function (Edit) to disable blocks if necessary. The change will be updated in the system in a few minutes.
Make sure that data transfer is also enabled in your phone’s settings.
Why is the change happening now?
In the future, we will offer you even more care-free data usage in Europe. At the same time, we comply with the EU Roaming Regulation, which provides for a certain amount of data usage in EU and EEA countries in the monthly subscription fee. The data usage included in the monthly fee in the EU and EEA countries depends on the normal monthly fee for the subscription. For this reason, the amount of data available varies between subscriptions.
Why there is a different amount of data in different subscriptions?
The data usage included in the monthly fee for the EU and EEA countries depends on the standard monthly subscription fee, and therefore the amount of data transfer available varies between differently-priced subscriptions.
