Recommendations for mobile roaming in 2019?

Hello, I'm new to the forum ^^ I'm Italian, been living in Switzerland for almost 2 years now and recently moved to Lausanne.

So, when I first moved in 2017 I opted for an M-budget Mini mobile plan (19 CHF/month). Whenever I travel to Europe or somewhere else I have the option of adding some add-on data/voice packet according to the region I visit.

I was wondering if in 2019 this is the best I can do? Is there any cheap EU plan or prepaid available? It's really a shame that Switzerland is still stuck in the roaming hell!

For example, I have seen this Yallo Fat at 29 CHF/Month that looks pretty good. But It looks a bit sketchy to me, in particular I can't understand if the 29 CHF/month is just for the first few months or it is the regular tariff. Opinions?

Thanks in advance for any recommendations!

Yallo is good and the real deal, it's regular tariff, and more important without minimum contract duration.

But i would go for the super FAT one, because it has 1GB roaming. 200Mb is nothing.

Be very very careful with Yallow, particularly when it comes to Roaming.

When in Canada I got an SMS from them saying sign up for Roaming only CHF20 for a month.

When I got home I had a huge bill. When Queried they said that deal wasn't available in Canada, I should have read the terms and conditions ???? !!!!

Surely they knew I was in Canada.

Barstewards.

I saw about this subscription today cause my 2 year contract from salt ends soon. Especially for the 10GBs per month roaming, it's amazing. I travel a lot inside europe and it's a really nice deal, compared to the 200mb Salt gives me.

Be careful, note the star on the order form "*Price for first 12 months", this contract is for 12 months at CHF29/month. It might very well go up to CHF69/month after the 12 month special offer.

Check out the new Mobile Go abos from Swisscom, I think they start at 45 chf a month and include 40GB per month roaming. I pay another 20 CHF for international calls.

Compared to the old abos, the new ones are much better value.

Another note on this one is that call inbetween EU countries do NOT count (read the fine print)
