Roaming terms and conditions

Data Roaming Spend Caps and Notifications

Data Roaming Spend Caps and Notifications

  1.     Vodafone is required by Regulation to offer a Data Roaming Spend Caps and Notifications service to help its customers to control costs when accessing email or the internet while roaming. Throughout these terms and conditions, the ‘Customer’ relates to the individual subscriber to whom the SIM card is linked.
  2.     There are two data roaming spend caps for prepaid services and three data roaming spend caps for bill pay services.
    Prepaid
    •    The default spend caps are €50 and €100 excluding vat. The €50 (ex. VAT) default spend cap applies unless a customer opts out of it.  If a customer opts out of the €50 (ex. VAT) default spend cap an additional spend cap of €100 (ex. VAT) will apply. If a customer opts out of the €100 (ex. VAT) spend cap, then no spend cap will apply.
    BillPay (Consumer and Business customers)
    •    The default spend caps are €50, €100, and €300 excluding vat. The €50 (ex. VAT) default spend cap applies unless a customer opts out of it.  If a customer opts out of the €50 ex vat default spend cap an additional spend cap of €100 (ex. VAT) will apply. If a customer opts out of the €100 ex vat default spend cap an additional spend cap of €300 (ex. VAT) will apply. If a customer opts out of the €300 (ex. VAT) default spend cap, then no spend cap will apply.
  3.     All spend cap calculations are based on roaming data usage in a single monthly billing period. At the start of the next billing period, accumulation towards the spend cap shall be reset to zero.  For any customer on a data roaming price plan, the fixed cost of the data roaming price plan as well as any out-of-bundle or per MB costs (i.e., the total spend to date in the monthly billing period) will count towards the calculation of the spend cap for that month. Usage accumulated shall be reset to zero at the start of the next billing period. For Pay as you go Customers, the data roaming spend caps are reset on the 1st of the month.
  4.     When a customer accesses data abroad, they will receive a warning message when their data usage is near 80% of the applicable spend cap and again when they have reached the data roaming limit set by the applicable spend cap.  The customer shall then be barred from data roaming for the rest of that billing period unless they choose to opt out of the applicable spend cap for that month. Both notifications will inform the customer how to opt out of the applicable spend cap to continue usage beyond the cap. Customers will receive a text message to the inbox of their mobile phone or to the SMS inbox of their mobile broadband software. Older mobile broadband devices may not have the software capability to be able to receive pop up SMS notifications. In these circumstances, customers must go into the SMS inbox of their mobile broadband device to view the notification. If an inbound text message bar is in place, then the end user will not receive notifications.
  5.     Upon reaching a spend cap the customer will be barred from data roaming for the remainder of the applicable monthly billing period unless they choose to extend usage beyond the spend cap. When this cap has been reached, data that is in the course of being downloaded will be lost.
  6.     Vodafone's data roaming spend cap and other notifications are reliant on a customer's ability to receive and send text messages from the device being used. Any customer who reaches the applicable data roaming spend cap via use of his/her iPad, can opt out of the applicable spend cap, or call Vodafone customer care to have the spend cap lifted.
  7.     When a customer reaches the applicable spend cap, the customer will receive a notification indicating the procedure to be followed if the customer wishes to continue provision of the data roaming services. Should a customer choose to exceed the applicable spend cap, that customer shall accept the risk that he/she may accumulate significant charges within their monthly billing period at the applicable out-of-bundle per MB rate.
  8.      Vodafone reserves the right to modify the data roaming service at any time for technical, operational, regulatory, or legal reasons. Vodafone may suspend or vary the data roaming service without prior notice for repair or maintenance, or for any other valid reason.
  9.      A customer can at any stage opt for or remove a data roaming spend cap in which case, the change will be made free of charge within one working day of receipt of the request. All other terms and conditions of the customer’s data roaming plan will remain unaffected and there will be no penalty or restriction involved.
  10.     Instructions to opt in or out of the financial limits are outlined below. Notifications on how to exceed these spend caps are also sent to customers, provided they are opted in to receiving data spend caps and notifications.

  1. Roaming is an optional Service which allows you to use your Device on operators' networks, in foreign countries. Roaming relies on the telecommunications systems of foreign networks, over which we have no control. We cannot therefore offer any guarantees about Roaming services. Coverage areas and technologies vary between select markets, actual download speeds depend upon device characteristics, network, network availability and coverage levels, tasks, file characteristics, applications and other factors. Performance may be impacted by transmission limitations, terrain, in-building/in-vehicle use and capacity constraints.
  2. If you use Services from a country outside the Republic of Ireland, your use of the Services may be subject to different laws and regulations that apply in that other country. Vodafone is not liable for your failure to comply with those laws or regulations.
  3. Services originated or received while outside your domestic (Republic of Ireland) coverage area are subject to roaming charges. Mobile internet data roaming charges automatically apply to all customers who access the internet on their phone while abroad, using the Live access point (live.vodafone.com).

  16. If your use of the Data Services on other carriers' wireless networks ("offnet data usage") during any month exceeds your offnet data usage allowance, Vodafone may at its option terminate your access to the service, deny your continued use of other carriers' coverage, or change your plan to one imposing usage charges for offnet data usage. Your offnet data usage allowance is equal 20% of the kilobytes included with your plan.
  17. Service charges while roaming do not include event charges such as charges for download of ringtones or games, and do not include the use of any data services for which a special charge is made.

2017 EU Roaming Regulation

EU Roaming Regulation Information

1.        Fair Use of Roaming Services

Vodafone has enabled customers to use bill pay and pay as you go plan allowances when roaming in the EU. In accordance with EU regulation Vodafone may take action to prevent abusive or anomalous use of roaming services. In using Vodafone Ireland services you must be normally resident or have stable links entailing a frequent and substantial presence in the Republic of Ireland. 

  • Confirmation of residence/stable links: We may need request reasonable proof to determine your normal place of residence.  The type of proof that we may request includes presentation of a valid document such as a utility bill or a property rental agreement along with proof of identification. We may request this information before connecting you to our services or if after a period of observation there are indications of possible abusive or anomalous use.  We will only request information that is strictly necessary and proportionate to confirm that you are normally resident or have stable links to Ireland.
  • Objective Indicators of Anomalous use: Vodafone will also monitor for other objective indicators of abusive or anomalous use such as establishing whether there is prevailing domestic consumption over roaming consumption or whether there is a prevailing domestic presence over a presence in another EU country. As a guide we will consider that your use or your presence is prevailing domestic if more than 50% of use or network connections are domestic within the period of measurement permitted under EU Regulation.  We will also look at whether there is a long period of inactivity of a given SIM card associated with use mostly if not exclusively while roaming, or if there is sequential use of multiple SIM cards by the same customer when roaming.  In addition if we identify organised resale we will take immediate steps to ensure compliance with our contractual requirements.
  • Open Data Bundles: Unless otherwise specified Vodafone is providing full take your home tariff abroad on plans with calls texts and data plan.  In the case of mobile broadband plans that permit roaming there is a specific fair use volume limit within the mobile broadband plan. The details of the fair use volume limit are specified in your tariff terms and conditions and we will advise in your roaming message when you arrive.  Check your SMS application for details.

2.        Information on Roaming

Under EU Roaming regulations we have put in place a number of measures to ensure you are kept adequately informed of roaming charges when using roaming services, in particular data roaming services, so that you can so that you are able to monitor and control how much you spend.

  • Roaming Message:  Each time you roam you shall receive an automatic message from Vodafone that you are roaming and this will include your basic tariff information. You may ask us to turn these messages off or on at any time free of charge.
  • Default Financial Limit (‘Spend Cap’): There is also a data roaming spend caps in place to ensure your roaming usage shall not exceed €50 per month ex VAT (€61.50 inc VAT). You have the option to continue roaming after the cap is applied by opting to remove the cap for that calendar month on pay as you go or for that monthly billing period on bill pay.  Alternatively you can decide to remove the feature altogether however we recommend that you keep the data roaming spend cap on to assist you in managing roaming spend. If you remove the cap at any time on a temporary or permanent basis then you accept that you may incur significant additional roaming charges. The cap will apply to all roaming usage whether inside or outside the EU. When the cap is applied any data that is course of being downloaded may be lost.
  • Additional Data Limits: Vodafone also provides an additional financial limit for data use of €360 inc VAT
  • Notifications: We will let you know when your usage is approaching or when you have reached the financial limit.  In general this will be by an SMS message.  If your device has restricted SMS capability on the Vodafone network then you may need to contact Vodafone customer care to remove the cap. The message we send includes details on how you can continue using data roaming services. Instructions to opt in or out of the financial limits are also outlined here

Vodafone reserves the right to modify the data roaming service at any time for technical, operational, regulatory or legal reasons. Vodafone may suspend or vary the data roaming service without prior notice for repair or maintenance, or for any other valid reason.

Consumer Rights Under the Data Roaming Regulations 

EC Regulation No. 544/2009 (the “Regulation”) requires that customers are kept adequately informed of the charges that will apply when using data roaming services so that customers are able to monitor and control how much they spend when using mobile data services abroad. Specific actions are required of Vodafone, as a mobile service provider to ensure that this is the case: 

  • Every time a customer is roaming, he / she will be informed by an automatic message from Vodafone that he / she is roaming. As part of this, the customer will be given their basic tariff information on the relevant data roaming charges applicable for roaming in the European Union country concerned, except where the customer has notified Vodafone that he / she does not want to receive this information. Where a customer has so notified Vodafone of this, the customer also has the right to reverse that decision and ask Vodafone to provide that information service again in the future free of charge. 

  • The Regulation requires Vodafone to make available to all their data roaming customers a facility which provides information on their data roaming spend.  This must be available free of charge and guarantees that without a customer’s explicit consent, their accumulated data roaming spend over a monthly billing period does not exceed a specified financial limit. €50 per month (€61.50 including VAT) is the default financial limit.  This means that it is applicable to all customers who have not opted out of it. In addition to the €50 limit (€61.50 including VAT), Vodafone may offer additional limits. Vodafone offers an additional financial limit of €300 (€369 including VAT).  Customers will not be able to continue data roaming when they reach the specified financial limit during a billing period unless they choose to choose to opt out of the applicable financial limit for that month. 

  • Customers must also be informed when their usage is near to and when they have reached the agreed financial limit (for example by an SMS message, an e-mail or a pop-up window on the computer). The alert message will advise customers of the procedure to be followed if they wish to continue data roaming and the cost associated with each individual unit that may be consumed.  Customers have the right to require Vodafone to stop sending such messages and the right at any time and free of charge to require Vodafone to provide the service again in the future. 

  • Regardless of a customer’s data roaming price plan , they always have the right to opt for or remove a financial limit for data roaming, without affecting in any way the other terms and conditions of their plan. The limit must be set or removed within one working day of receipt of the request, free of charge.   

  • Customers must also be informed of the risk of automatic and uncontrolled data connection and download. Please see [insert link], for more information on how to avoid uncontrolled consumption of data roaming services on your Smartphone. 

  • Instructions to opt in or out of the financial limits are outlined below and are also sent to customers in the notifications he/she receives when abroad: 

TO OPT OUT: 

For the €50 spend cap (€61.50 including VAT): 

Text ‘NO EU CAP’ TO 50193 

For the €300 spend cap (€369 including VAT): 

Text ‘NO UPPER LIMIT <PIN>’ to 50193 

The PIN you need to insert is the last 4 digits of your customer number 

For spend notifications: 

Text ‘NO NOTIFY’ to 50193. 

TO OPT BACK IN: 

For the €50 spend cap (€61.50 including VAT): 

Text ‘YES EU CAP’ TO 50193 

For the €300 spend cap (€369 including VAT): 

Text ‘YES UPPER LIMIT’ to 50193
