Basically Direct and indirect sales as well as existing customers are affected!
Just a quicky as it does effect us smartphone users somewhat.
T-Mobile UK have just put up today that thay are changing their previously generous data policy (3GB, but never really cared if you went over) to 500mb a month.
Frankly, this just isn't enough if you don't have easy access to Wifi, modern smartphones are designed to access the web, use maps,watch videos and constantly sync with sites like twitter,facebook etc, all requiring data use.
Basically they say the data allowance isn't for gaming,videos or uploading/downloading.....
Pasted from their site:
Changes to Mobile Internet fair use policies
T-Mobile is the only operator to give customers the Mobile Internet for a fixed-price. We never charge our customer's more than they expect for their Mobile Internet in the UK.
Therefore you'll never need to worry about how many emails you've sent, how long you've been on-line or the ‘data / GB’s’
Browsing means looking at websites and checking email, but not watching videos, downloading files or playing games. We’ve got a fair use policy but ours means that you'll always be able to browse the internet, it’s only when you go over the fair use amount that you won’t be able to download, stream and watch video clips.
So Whats Changing? - From 1st February 2011 we will be aligning our fair use policies so our mobile internet service will have fair use of 500MB.
What Does This Mean? - We’ll always let you email and browse the internet and you’ll never pay more than you agree to. We do have a fair use policy but ours is there to make sure we deliver the best service possible to all our customers. This means that you’ll always be able to browse the internet.
So remember our Mobile Broadband and internet on your phone service is best used for browsing which means looking at your favorite websites like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, BBC News and more, checking your email and looking for information, but not watching videos or downloading files.
If you want to download, stream and watch video clips, save that stuff for your home broadband.
