A small update to the T-Mobile story yesterday about the reduction in data limits. Tech Radar have uncovered that the new limit of 500MB also applies to Android users who previously were given a 3GB data allowance per month for Internet traffic on their phones. This reduction equates to a whopping 83% reduction down to just 1/6th of the previous data allowance. T-Mobile don't expect too many people to be affected though as most customers only use around 200MB a month. Usage does continually grow however, and with ever more video content becoming available on our mobiles, this average is likely to only rise.
"T-Mobile will not charge its customers additional rates for exceeding these data limits, and those who do will still be able to access important services such as email and website browsing, but will have file downloading restricted.
"Customers who have a need for higher volumes of data will be encouraged to take up a separate mobile broadband plan."T-Mobile spokesperson
