Oh well. Had to stop sometime. Various 3 sims I have cannot now purchase the £5 monthly internet getting an error 'you are not authorised to view this page' when accessing the link once logged in. Happened since 3rd of dec IIRC, coninciding with a text apologising that topups for 'broadband' sims now no longer get any free data. Before that I was able to setup someone else for 6 months no worries.
3 have been in the news recently regarding throttling service for some users based on content...I think this is the start of it :-(
For the time being, a new free 3 sim availale instore got me back online. Haven't checked the speed yet.
Might have to get the data settings for the giffgaff sim I have and unlock all my dongles... free internet until may :-)
Anyone else been 'knocked off'?
