At the current exchange rate shouldn't calls be around 14p and data around 15p?

@sam123456789 Yeah I missed that, they're still a little high though. With VAT calls would be 17.2p and you can't round up because the EU figures are the maximimum so you have to round down to 17p.. But you're right, data is 19.1p so rounded down 0.1p.

Good news!

@neil40 texts and data are now cheaper when roaming than when you're at home on giffgaff pay as you go so  that can't be a bad thing Smiley Very Happy
