Brazil roaming allowance reduced by 70% since March 2017

EE were offering 500Mb for £6 a day in March 2017. It’s now offering just 150Mb for the same daily fee. Putting aside I wouldn’t pay for either, because they’re both poor value, this is a 70% reduction in data for the same daily fee.

 

March 2017

 

Welcome to Brazil. Text MAX TRAVEL to 150 to get a massive 500MB of daily data for a fixed £6.00 a day while you're there. Opt in once and you'll only be charged on days you use data abroad in an included country. For full details, click add-on.ee.co.uk/maxtraveldata for free (check data roaming is ON). Otherwise, you can choose a standard data add-on from £5 for 50MB. Click add-on.ee.co.uk for free to buy. Calls cost £1.80/min to make or receive, texts 60p and pic msg 50p each to send. Call +447953966250 for Customer Services (£1.80/min) & 112 in case of emergency. Have a good trip! For the best possible network coverage please make sure your handset can automatically select a network. If you need help to do that, go here: http://ee.co.uk/help/phones-and-device

At least they had the common sense to remove the word “massive” when they changed the text message.

Thanks. I see the current 150Mb for £6 per day is listed under Brazil on that web page. 

 

Any feedback about why the 70% reduction? Did those that set such prices think they were being overly generous when it was 500Mb?
