What's the limit (FUP) on the unlimited data? Thanks.
Edit: I'll answer that myself: 3.5GB / month limit and no tethering according to VM itself. Somebody please correct it if incorrect / not applicable to OP deal.
"...Excessive use over 3.5GB of data per calendar month will result in your maximum bandwidth being restricted to 3G speeds (384kbit/s downstream, 200kbit/s upstream) on our network...."
"...mobile internet services and data consumption actually on your handset. It does not include using your handset as a modem to connect other devices such as laptops and tablets - also known as "Tethering"...."

It’s 100gb a month fair use policy.
This isn't really a deal either because you can get this tariff at this price if you ring virgin and ask for it - I did a few years back before I went to three.

From the URL stated in the last line of the comment you quoted. Other posters are suggesting that there may be another VM URL(s) stating different unlimited limitations specific to OP deal.

Nah, it's unlimited bandwidth to 3.5GB/month, then the FUP is applied as unlimited snailspeed bandwidth (384kbit/s downstream, 200kbit/s upstream) for the rest of the month.
DO NOT BUY. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER.
WILL INCREASE PRICE IN THE MIDDLE.
AND NO RETENTION DEAL.

I PAID FULL TO JUST CANCEL MY CONTRACT AS THEY WERE PATHETIC WITH EVERYTHING.

FUP 3.5GB limit keeps on appearing cos VM keep stating it.
So guess you can only get this in that store, or is it available via phone/other stores? Been looking for some good unlimited data or 30GB+ deals, missed out on the Black Friday ones for unlimited and 40gb etc.

I tend to believe the t&c quoted by VM on its website here that states the 3.5GB FUP limit and the "no tethering" restriction. Maybe someone could provide a credible ref to alternative more beneficial terms. Does anybody have a contract document that they are willing to share that states unrestricted unlimited? Thanks.

Wrong again I'm getting 40 MBPS down
"Do you do unlimited data?
No but our plans do give you loads of data
We bet you’ll find our 20GB option is more than enough data to keep you ticking over for the whole month. 20GB of mobile data is equivalent to about 600 hours of steady internet browsing over the month or 20 hours a day. And that’s without ever using WiFi! When did you last use your phone that much in a day?" I used to have unlimited 3g data. I remember the t&c's at the time quoted the 3.5gb data limit on 3g. I think that's what's being referred to. I don't have unlimited data now but 4g is much faster than 3g. I have never been slowed down but I connect to WIFI mostly.

Currently on the unlimited plan offered by VM on Black Friday £20pm.
My account refreshes in 10 days.
Used data so far 70+gb.
Mainly use for tethering.
Happy so far, guess i will see how much they increase it in April.

Dude, if anybody is "wrong", it is VM. Everything will be sweetness and light until VM chooses to enforce its own t&c, then VM will be correct, and VMs frustrated customers will be directed to the long-standing t&c...

Wasn't aware Metro had any influence over VM policies. Best to wait for someone to post the applicable t&c / VM contract doc that confirms OP allowances.
