Data useage on mobile contracts
My 12 month SIM-only deal from T-Mobile has come to an end and I was looking at other options. It's amazing what you can get for £5 or £7 a month.
I notice Virgin mobile do a VIP deal £15/month unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited data.
I wanted to see what unlimited data meant and came across this hidden away in their terms and conditions
Unlimited mobile internet is subject to a fair use allowance of 1GB per month. If your usage exceeds this amount then we reserve the right to charge you for the excessive element of your usage at the daily rate for your tariff outlined in our Tariff Table. Unlimited use is within the UK and is for your personal, non-commercial use only. It doesn't include making internet phone or video calls, peer to peer file sharing, using your phone as a modem, or while you are abroad and any of these uses will be charged at the daily rate for your tariff outlined in our Tariff Table.
Does Unlimited really mean 1GB per month? I hardly call this unlimited when other providers such as T-Mobile have 3GB/month (which they don't claim to be Unlimited).
To make matters even worse they have other SIM-only deals with "1GB Data" (not called "Unlimited Data"). So here we have 1GB Data and Unlimited Data, whereas it appears they are both infact the same data plan????
Surely this cannot be legal under Trades Descriptions?
