You're right - I've just looked at their small print and found this:
I use GiffGaff and love the service they provide, but I'm suspicious that they too will reduce the 'unlimited data' usage at some point this year as T Mobile have done.
That will mean a charge of maybe £15 a month (50p/day) and with a 30MB ceiling. I'm assuming that's 30MB per day for the 50p charge, so 900MB for £15/month on top of the call package? I'm not sure that's so great when T will reinstate the 3GB for £15/month.
Free Mobile Internet:
You lucky giffgaff pioneers can even enjoy free UK mobile Internet up to the 28 FEB 2011. After that date, mobile Internet will be charged at 50p a day (if you use less than 2.5MB/day you'll pay less than 50p and if you go over 30MB you'll be charged extra at 20p/MB). But all our goodybags that include unlimited Internet will continue including unlimited Internet after the 28 FEB 2011.
T are reducing the FUP *by* 2.5GB, leaving you with a measly 500MB. This has been confirmed as effective for ALL customers, not just new contracts.
Hi I spoke to tmob yester day and they said that my account for data will drop from 3gb to 2.5gb. thats not so bad. however im not happy at the notice period. ie NONE.
Let the battle commence...
I've had lengthy conversations with both T and Ofcom today. The plot thickens and CS are adamant they are not required to give "a month's" (Ofcom clause 9.3) notice. They consider *any* form of notice to be adequate *anytime* before the 1 Feb. So, that'll be a text at 23.59 on 31 Jan will it? CS seemed to think that would be appropriate.
