Mobile broadband provider T-Mobile has launched a new initiative designed to reduce the charges faced by UK consumers when logging on overseas.
The firm is introducing Euro Broadband Boosters fixed prices for mobile broadband access on the continent next month, reports the Inquirer.
For £1, dongle users gain access to a 3MB data allowance enough for 15 minutes of email checking, rising to 20MB for £5.
Consumers willing to pay £10 can browse the internet for a whole day, while monthly broadband deals are available for £40.
Ralf Pearson, Senior Propositions Manager for Mobile Broadband at T-Mobile, said the firm wanted subscribers to be able to take their laptop abroad without worrying about costs getting "out of control".
He added: "With this proposition, we're offering these customers a range of better value, worry-free options, built to suit their different on-line needs while they're in the most popular travel destinations."
Earlier this week, it was reported that Nottingham student William Harrison ran up an £8,000 bill on his dongle during a six-month placement in Paris.
