3G / Data plans / SIM cards
Basics in EU:
* ~ June 15 2017, roaming will be free
* As of Sept. 2016, at least one provider already offers free data roaming within 43 European countries on prepaid SIMs (the "YOU" plans of Vodafone Netherlands; YOU online only is 10€/mo for 1GB)
* Until then, from May 1st 2016, it's 6c/MB (60€/GB) without a package
* Some providers offer (100MB, 500MB, etc) international data in their packages. That's good deals.
* Normal pre-paid price is 1GB for ~8€ including the SIM
EU / international packages:
* Three UK SIM:
* SIM is available on ebay for less than 2€ incl shipping
* could be best option for a lot of data on Lanzarote as well
Spain / Lanzarote:
* We're currently using Lebara. Details on CHT🔗cht-role-comm(R/W).
* Lyca also looks cheap (5€/gb)
- In Germany all SIM cards need to be registered with name and address. Most of the time name and address are not checked.
- In Berlin there are a lot of stores that will sell SIM cards that are "already activated" in some random guys name.
- Where to look?
- Kottbusser Damm (the whole street has many small telecom shops. if they advertise "LYCAMOBILE 3GB 10€" for example that's what you need)
- Sonnenallee ((the whole street has many small telecom shops. if they advertise "LYCAMOBILE 3GB 10€" for example that's what you need)
- Want to know everything about German SIM cards?!

- Young innovative FinTech Startup - lol, why do we even write about it here? - because their bank account is the easiest to open as you don't need proofof address, so the card can be shipped to a hotel hostel or friend.
- You can use every ATM in the world for free (expect some ATMs in US or Thailand that charge their own fess).
- It gives you a IBAN number to send and receive transfers in the EU for free.
- Everything is controlled through their smartphone app which also shows you everything you spend in real time.
- In Germany you can pay up to 100€ per month cash into the account, after that it costs 1,5%.
- The account does not charga any monthly fees.
- You can open this bank account with a shipping address in Germany, Austria, United Kingdom, Greece, France, Italy, Ireland, Slovenia, ID and a smartphone.
- Basically like number26 but in GBP instead of EUR http://monese.com also costs 5GBP per month
- http://getmondo.co.uk/ Like monese but newer.
* DKB (free no ATM fees worldwide)
number26 (free no ATM fees worldwide, works with a awesome smartphone app, sign up here to donate 10€ to CHT http://number26.de/einladen?token=8JWOJ-sdkCl6qf (wischis Ref-link, not sure if this link works at all. contact wischi to get a personal link that gives wischi 10€ that will go directly to CHT)
* Bank of China: Just go into a local branch with your passport some cash to pay into your new account (100 RMB is more than enough) and ask them to open an account for you. If they don't understand go to the next bigger branch.
