Orange simplifies data by capping at 30MB
New low in 'unlimited' definition
Orange has launched its unmetered-mobile-data tariff for the UK - but unexpectedly capped it at 30MB a month.
The tariff is available to pre-paid as well as contract customers, and costs a fiver for evening and weekend use, or £8 for anytime unmetered data access. Only it's not as unmetered as one might hope.
When we covered the tariff last month we expected to see a fair-use limitation. although we couldn't confirm it at the time. We had anticipated a limit at around 1GB, as imposed by most of the competition.
We didn't expect a deal so poor it would make Vodafone's £7.50-for-130MB/month offer look good.
Orange confirmed the limit to us, and noted that it has other tariffs with greater "fair-use" limits. ®
