Dutch Tele2 offers unlimited 4G + 10GB EU (including Swiss) roaming data?

I heard from friend in Amsterdam that Tele2 offers a 25 euro plan which allows you use unlimited domestic 4G + 10GB data roaming in EU (including Switzerland), effective after June 8, 2017

https://unlimited.tele2.nl/

That sounds even cheaper than most Swiss carrier? I definitely can't consume 10GB mobile data even in Switzerland.

Will you have all your friends call a Dutch number to get in touch with you?

Yes, you need a dutch number. Plus, the "roam like you are at home" ruling that will kick in this month, does require you to be in the NL most of the time. Tele2 can cancel your subscription if they see that you are only outside of the NL all the time. This was added to the new regulation, to prevent Europeans to all get subscriptions in the country with the lowest cost.

Get a 2 SIM phone. Move your Swiss number to a PrePaid account. Use your Dutch number for outcalls.

Kinda "easy but not soooo easy" so most Swiss will pass for saving just a little bit money..

But @YuropFlyer: if Tele2 sees that you are in CH all the time, they will cancel your subscription. You can use the subscription in all of the EU (and CH) but not permanently. There is no (almost) free lunch...

I considered this as well, until I read the general conditions.

Still hoping Swiss carriers might lower their prices after 8 June, but I doubt they will.

Lycamobile still remains the cheapest and uses Swisscom's network in Switzerland.

International roaming is paid for with the free top-up bonuses...

Maybe I am missing it, but none of their bundles seems to include international data(?)... that's the key difference these days, isn't it? I really like my google maps to work when I visit Paris or London...

They certainly used to have very cheap roaming bundles. I worked out that they would effectively be a little cheaper than my very cheap through work Swisscom deal for domestic and far cheaper for roaming in Europe and further afield. I ordered a bunch of SIMs (me, gf, iPads etc), but they seemed incapable of actually activating them and their customer services inbox was so full it rejected new messages. The hassle to saving ratio got too big for me, so I've given up!

Relative to salary, I was totally reamed out in Malta for a worse deal than what I have with Salt

Just out of interest, given the EU's much vaunted four freedoms, which include free movement of goods and services, how can they get away with limiting it to those who are primarily in NL, as opposed to anywhere in the EU? Not being facetious, I am genuinely interested.

Well, that depends on how you compare it.

If we just compare monthly subscription fee, swiss is indeed very expensive. I was comparing roaming costs v.s. domestic subscription, it looks weird when the former is cheaper than the latter.

Also, Salt's prepaid SIM provides unlimited 4G data for 2Fr (or 1Fr if only used less than 10 days). per day, and you can choose what days to use or not. I haven't seen any other EU countries provide such decent deal.
