Additional information on the pricing for international use

All prices include VAT 0%.

The prices apply to normal-priced calls and text messages. In the EU zone, the charging interval for outgoing calls is one second (minimum charge: 30 seconds) and one second for incoming calls. When calling in or to other zones, the charging interval is 30 seconds. The prices are the same at all hours of the day and regardless of whether you are calling a landline or a mobile phone number.

Using the mobile network’s roaming in ships’ and planes’ networks is not possible with Elisa’s subscriptions. This does not prevent using the mobile phone in the ships’ and planes’ own Wi-Fi networks (free or subject to a fee). Phone calls to satellite numbers in an international network are subject to a separate fee and not included in the subscription’s potential roaming use for no additional fee.

The charging interval for data transfer is 1 kB. In the EU zone, you will pay the additional fee only after you exceed the reasonable data use limit. Elsewhere, the pricing is daily and valid from midnight to midnight in Finnish time.

Important information for passangers travelling to the USA

The 3G network in the USA will be shut down in the near future. AT&T closed their 3G network on 22 February 2022. If you want to use your mobile subscription's voice and text services in AT&T's network, your mobile subscription needs to support 4G phone calls (VoLTE) and your device needs to support VoLTE roaming. If your mobile subscription or device does not support VoLTE roaming, we recommend using T-Mobile's network in the USA. T-Mobile will shut down their 3G network during summer 2022.

Good to note: Even if your device supports 4G phone calls (VoLTE) in Finland, it might be that your device does not support 4G phone calls abroad (VoLTE roaming). You can check whether your device supports VoLTE roaming from your device manufacturer. Please also check whether your device supports 4G frequencies in the USA.
