Carphone clarifies '40 gigabit' download limit

You say tuh-may-doh, we say toe-mah-toe

The Carphone Warehouse is to amend the small print on its new broadband service following the vulture-eyed intervention of Register readers.

In a press release today plugging its new "free" broadband service the firm said the product was subject to a "40 gigabit monthly download limit".

But as Reg readers were quick to point out, gigabits ain't the same as gigabytes and Carphone's limit only amounted to around 5 gigabytes.

Asked to confirm the correct usage limits, a spokeswoman for Carphone told us that the "40 gigabit" limit printed in today's press release was "incorrect" and that it would be changed to "40 gigabyte". ®
