You can use the data in EU, but the fair use supplement of 0.46p/MB will continue to begin at 20GB. Giffgaff has to pay the roaming partners for any data you use and under EU rules the roaming partner can charge giffgaff more than you are paying for your goodybag.

 

Even at 20GB, giffgaff may already be making a loss on your data. EU rules also permit networks to limit data used and it is EU that specifies how giffgaff calculates the 0.46p/MB supplement charge.

 

So, giffgaff considers it can now give you more data while in the UK but cannot increase the inclusive data while roaming.
