Out of Bundle Charges
There might be times when you exceed your monthly allowance of data, minutes, or texts. When you reach this limit your usage is capped, but you can purchase extra to tide you over until your package renews itself. These are known as Out Of Bundle charges.
On EE once you use all of your data this is capped, therefore when you reach your data limit you will no longer be able to use the internet unless you purchase more from EE.

|From May 2022 Three will be introducing a charging structure for new and upgrading customers in its Go Roam countries, ensuring that those who roam will pay for the service in the future.
Three want to keep their roaming pricing as simple for customers as possible, charging a flat price of £2 per day in the EU. For Around The World (ATW) destinations, this will be £5 per day.
Pay As You Go customers will continue to have access to Go Roam Europe and ATW going forward. Roaming in Ireland is unaffected – Three believe this is the right thing to do in-particular for those who live on the border with the Republic of Ireland. The Isle of Man is also unaffected.
For current pricing please see http://www.three.co.uk/Support/Roaming_and_international/Roaming_and_international
With the new charging structure coming into effect, any new contract taken out after 1 st October 2021, would pay a roaming charge from the 23 May 2022.
