MMS) is collected. Open data packages are all tariffs that include a data flat rates or whose data services are cheaper than the aforementioned roaming wholesale prices.

= 2x (14.99 € / 9,163 € / GB) = 3.27 GB

This means that from an unused data volume of more than 3.27 GB per month, a surcharge of up to 9,163 € per GB is calculated by further data usage in other EU countries.
