Thanks for the heads up. I'm eagerly awaiting the legal advice from which/ofcom.

On Monday 10 January 2011 we announced that, in line with the rest of the industry, T-Mobile would be reducing its Fair Use Policy for data usage to 500MB a month for all mobile phone customers. Following a further review of our policy, these changes will now be introduced from 1 February, to new and upgrading customers only - not existing customers.

There will be no change to the data packages for existing customers for the duration of their contract and we apologise for any confusion caused. The revision to the Fair Use Policy is designed to ensure an improved quality of service for all mobile internet users."

Lysa Hardy, VP, T-Mobile UK

We kept up the pressure, and just showed a huge company not to walk over its customers. Good work everyone. Pity my contract expires in May

Congrats to the unaffected people... unfortunately the new contracts being limited to 500MB are probably just a sign of things to come

Yeah, that was good going guys...
Im just worried about the future of internet in the UK now
with ISPs monitoring and tracking traffic...and now mobile operators limiting bandwidth...which I can understand to an extent, afterall there is so much more crap on the internet than there was 5 years ago...but still...the future looks bad
