Fair Usage Policy and Important Information
- Our roaming services are intended for Lyca Mobile customers who visit EU AND EEA Countries for short periods, for example a holiday or short trip. Our roaming Fair Usage Policy is designed to prevent misuse of our EU AND EEA Countries roaming products and service.
- To use our EU AND EEA Countries roaming services you must first activate your SIM in your home country (and have purchased a Lyca Mobile product that includes EU AND EEA Countries roaming services).
- If over a four-month period we notice that you roam more than you use your phone at home, we might think you are permanently roaming. In such case we will send you a text message reminding you of the need to comply with our roaming Fair Usage Policy.
- If you do not comply with our roaming Fair Usage Policy within two weeks of the reminder text message, we will apply the following surcharges for your EU AND EEA Countries roaming usage:
Calls: 0.03€ per min
SMS: 0.01€ per SMS
Data: 0.006€ per MB
- If you have a prepaid bundle that includes EU AND EEA Countries roaming services, then a different data limit may apply when you roam within EU AND EEA Countries. Please check here for details of the data limit.
- Your calls to other Lyca Mobile numbers are free at home (minimum top-up applies), but when you roam within EU AND EEA Countries they will be charged (or deducted from your bundle allowance) as standard calls.
- If we identify abusive usage of our roaming services due to organised resale or our SIM cards to persons who normally live outside of Portugal then we may take immediate proportionate measures to stop this, which could include suspension of services. We will send a text message to any such affected SIM cards.
