    O2's unlimited mobile internet bolton????

    How the heck can O2 show their internet bolt on as unlimited, and yet in the next sentence, have a fair use 200MB / month limitation. It just beggars belief. Gawd, these companies really think we are stoopid. I wonder what the unlimited relates to then? O2 would probably come back and say, "oh, the unlimited means we don't have any limitation on the site you visit, you can visit WAP sites, web sites, and tell you what, even other sucker sites like ours are freely available to browse, just don't go over the 200Mb / month limit ". Jeez, they remind me of that guy in the Nationwide advert, with O2 having the same attitudeas the guy in the bank, not the Nationwide, if you see what I mean.

    Go look here for a laugh!

    The link you posted doesn't display any info! (I assume its fine on your browser with whatever cookies you have!)

    To be honest, thats a massive improvement on what they had - but still well short of the mark. I noticed they have 3GB limits - @ £25 pm - but thats far more expensive that 3 ot T-mobile.

    A shame, because Id rather use O2 than my current provider T-mobile - but thats not gonna happen. Using my phone as a modem, its fast, has a 1gb cap and costs £7.50 pm.

    its like orange unlimited texts (limited to 3000 lol)

    not that you would use that much anyhows

    Always wondered how companies can call something unlimited and impose a limit? Might phone them up when I'm in a bad mood and try to get them to admit that there is a limit. Surely if you phone and say you've heard about this unlimited plan they do and just wanted to make sure there wasn't any limits on it then they'd have to say that there was?

    no no. It is unlimited - it just has a fair usage policy. Quite obvious really! Anyone would think its false advertising or something!!!:whistling:

    As it goes - is this not something Ofcom are going to address - or was that just speed?

    This does irritate me a lot, any time I see 'unlimited' I'm looking in the small print to see what the actual usage limit is. It's rarely anywhere close to unlimited and I shouldn't have to hunt to find those limits.

    This reasonable use/fair use seems to be a massive grey area, I can see that companies can't offer 'unlimited' and can also see what is obviously unreasonable - when Genie was on the go and started capping customers there were people sending 20,000 texts a month which to me is completely absurd. However these days those limits are far lower and to me not fair use/reasonable in that if using the service normally you'd have to keep a close eye on the counter.

    Agreed.

    Why should they be allowed to falsely advertise something they are not selling!

    Wait til the end of the month...........
