What’s the data cap for the unlimited pay monthly sim while abroad? I understand the fair usage policy but can’t find any specific info on the unlimited plan.

Many thanks Anthony.

Hey @Ant3546 


When you are using your mobile data in one of the countries that are part of free roaming then iD Mobile does not require you to stick to a specific amount of data. You can still use your unlimited  allowance as long as you won't be downloading hundreds of 4K movies per day you will be fine. Fair usage policy is more about not overdoing it. As long as you use your mobile data as usual then you have got nothing to worry about :-)


Kind Regards
