I’ve never understood why the Always On is at the high end of the data offering especially as it is aimed at people who want to always be able to access e-mail and do some light browsing.
After all these actions are those of low data users.
And it specifically states that once the full speed amount is used then it isn’t fit for high data usage.
So what advantage does the high data user get? None.
Whereas low data users would get much more benefit
They don’t buy much data because they don’t use much data - just accessing e-mail and a little light browsing - (sound familiar?). So if they were ever to go over their allowance of full speed data they would still be able to do what they always do.
Whereas the heavy data user can exceed their limit and then NOT be able to do what they always do.
So how about making the £6 bag the Always On one and give us low users a go at being able to get “peace of mind that we won’t run out of data”.
After all it is more likely that this will happen to us given that we only have 500MB to start with.
And it is unlikely that we would then abuse the situation as, because we are low data users anyway, we aren’t going to suddenly start using data “just because we can” and “it’s free” as then we would risk being banned from buying the bag we want and would have to spend more for at least 3 months just to be able to stay connected.
Alternatively just get rid of it altogether as it seems to me to be more trouble than it’s worth!
