Roaming Internet Data

Question

I'm customer with Belgian Telecom, and I just called them to ask this question, but they don't really seem competent to give me an answer, so I wonder if anybody could tell me whether I always have to pay "Roaming Internet Data" when I'm outside Belgium. I had expected this to be within the plan of 500 MB per month that I purchased, but it doesn't seem to be the case.

Presumably you are actually a customer of Proximus, once known as Belgacom. Roaming within any EU country should be included within your 500 MB/month plan (although that isn't a large amount of data), but you have to pay for roaming elsewhere.

No, I'm a customer with Belgian Telecom (www.belgian-telecom.be). That's a different company than Proximus.
