Do you want to stream music everywhere you go? Or are you addicted to that new Netflix show? Unlimited data might be the way to go! 

There are multiple mobile providers that offer unlimited data in The Netherlands.

  • Budget Mobiel

Curious as to what is the best option for you?

Fair use policy

How exactly does unlimited data in The Netherlands work? It might come in handy to know this before you close the deal. All mobile providers offer a fair use policy, though there are a few differences. Some providers are more generous, whilst others have a stricter policy. 

All unlimited data plans offer you a daily data bundle. Let's say you get 10 GB a day. If you are almost out of data, you can manually upgrade it, usually with 2 GB at a time. You can do this for an unlimited amount of time. And a new day means a new 10 GB you can use. 

Let's look at this table to see what provider offers the best fair use policy:

Provider

Daily bundle Manually upgrade with...

Budget Mobiel

4 GB 1 GB

KPN

10 GB 2 GB

Vodafone

10 GB 2 GB

Tele2

10 GB 2 GB

T-Mobile

10 GB  2 GB

As you can see, there are big differences in the unlimited data offers. Keep this in mind when you order your new subscription.

Unlimited data abroad

Due to EU regulations, providers don't have to offer you the entirety of the unlimited data bundle when you travel to another (EU) country. This means you get a different data limit when you're abroad. This also applies to large data bundles (10 GB or more). 

Again, the limits differ a lot per provider. Here you can see all the limits per provider:

Provider

Limit in EU-countries

Budget Mobiel

17 GB

KPN

50 GB

Vodafone

40 GB

Tele2

24 GB

T-Mobile

30 GB

Conclusion: which provider should you choose?

In conclusion, here are all the providers and their offers for unlimited data, ranked by smallest to the best bundle:

Providers Daily bundle + manual upgrade

Limit in other EU-countries

Starting from...

Budget Mobiel

4 GB (manually upgrade with 1 GB)  17 GB € 20 a month

KPN

Tele2

Alternatives for unlimited data

Despite the name, unlimited data certainly has its limits.

If you don't want the hustle with manually having to upgrade your data each day, you can also choose a large data bundle. You just have to make sure not to exceed the limits:

data from 20 GB

Wrong. Tele2 gives a 10GB bundle that you can upgrade with 1GB not two.

Hi Eduards, With Tele2, you should be able to upgrade with 2 GB at the time. If this isn't possible for you, I recommend that you contact Tele2. Kind regards, Suzanne
