How does it work?

A data roaming cap is when you reach your data allowance abroad.

When in the EU, roaming is inclusive as part of your plan and you can use your phone as you would in the UK. You won't be able to use more than 50GB a month - the fair use policy cap (given in your roaming plan).                    

Max plan customers, who can also use their home allowance across another five countries, are subject to the same policy in both the EU and those five extra countries.

Good to know

If you’re abroad in a non-EU country, standard roaming charges apply and you may be subject to a data roaming cap
