94% of Europeans who travel outside their home country limit their use of services like Facebook, because of mobile roaming charges, according to a new survey of 28,000 EU citizens.

- 47% would never use mobile internet in another EU country.
- Only 1 out of 10 would use e-mails in the same way as at home.
- More than a quarter of us simply switch off our mobiles when we travel in the EU.
- Millions divert to SMS rather than pay for calls.
