Yes you can. To use mobile broadband using a dongle or to use a tablet when you're roaming abroad, you'll need to buy a roaming broadband data add-on.

How do I buy roaming broadband data add-ons?

When you try to go online while abroad through your browser or via an app you'll be offered a choice of data add-ons that will be relevant to the country you're visiting.

Our data add-ons will last for 30 days from when you buy it or until you've used you data allowance up, whichever comes first. Once your data add-on runs out, you'll have to buy another one in order to connect to the internet while you're abroad.

If you're a pay monthly customer, the cost of roaming broadband data add-ons will be added to your monthly bill. For pay as you go or Flex customers, roaming broadband data add-ons will need to be paid for at the time of purchase.

Good to know:

You'll be able to use data in any of the countries in the roaming zone your roaming broadband data add-on covers.

If you go outside any of the countries within the roaming zone that your roaming broadband data add-on covers then you won't be able to use the data and you'll be prompted to buy a different data add-on that covers your new roaming zone.
