    O2 UK "Unlimited" web bolt on limit is 200MB

    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd share a bit of information that may be useful to some people, and would have been useful to me a few months ago when I first got my Nexus One, if it had been available.

    The fair usage limit on the £7.50 O2 UK unlimited web bolt on is 200MB. I found it out after a few hours bothering customer services after they blocked my internet.

    Other providers tend to offer more for less, so I would not recommend using your Nexus One, or another smartphone on O2.

    I believe they no longer hold you too the 200MB

    However, if you have one of their PAYG SIMS which offer "Unlimited" Internet when you check your allowances you find it is 500MB

    But here in the UK the ASA judgement was 200MB can be called unlimited. Pity it was made before we had data hungry smartphones

    In my case, they held me to it. It doesn't apppear to be consistent though.

    If 200MB can be sold as unlimited, I'm supprised other carriers don't do it too.

    I must admit that T-Mobile UK have been honest with me in stating I have a 3GB limit. After that data will be a maximum of £1 per day. At least I know exactly where I stand

    The Vodafone 500Mb limit is a fair usage policy, not a hard limit according to reps on their eForum.

    UK allowances are not generous.

    We are a small, overpopulated island giving us a huge demand on the networks which are creaking at the seams - hence the smaller allowances

    The networks paid $35 billion to the government for the licences and then struggled to find the cash to build their networks which suffer from underinvestment. Now the government want to charge them again for 4G

    Good news for those who live in the US however, Some of the money paid by the networks went to pay off our debt to the USA for aid during the 2nd World War
